Walnuts for Pecans

Hi! Can I successfullu substitute walnuts for pecans in pralines? It is really difficult to find raw pecans in Greece and when I do they're outrageously expensive.

They'll work fine. A slight difference in flavor but just as delicious!

If you can get hold of some maple sugar or syrup, add some of that to the equation in sub for some of the "regular" sugar. That will add the sweetness you want.
