Pralines are an extremely sweet candy mixed with big pieces of pecans, usually somewhat cookie-shaped at least what I've found. They're very popular in New Orleans, but way too sweet for my taste. Kinda like a fluffy peanut brittle, only sweeter. And with pecans.

No worries, we'll keep an eye on you

This is an Italian recipe for SALTY pralines:

Ricotta, Parmesan Cheese and Pistachios Salty Pralines

(Typical Emilia Romagna recipe)


5 tbsp peeled pistachios (for the pralines)
1 cup of ricotta cheese
3 tbsp of grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoon olive oil
1-2 tablespoon of milk
7 tbsp peeled pistachios (for decoration)

Blend 5 tablespoons of pistachios in a mixer to obtain a flour.

In a large bowl put the ricotta and stir with a tablespoon to obtain a cream.
Add the pistachio flour, the Parmesan cheese, the olive oil and mix well.
Add salt and pepper at taste.
Add the milk only if the mixture seems too hard to stir.

With the mixture make little balls of the size of a walnut.
Let rest in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Coarsely chop 7 tablespoons of pistachios and put them in a plate.
Roll the balls in the chopped pistachios.
