Can I Replace the Pecans with Something Else?

Yes, you certainly can. While pecans work wonderfully with these praline cookies, you can also use any of these:

  • Almonds – Almonds are a great alternative to pecans as they are just as crunchy and have a similar flavor. They are also packed with nutrients, including vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber.
  • Walnuts – Walnuts are another good alternative to pecans as they have a similar texture and crunch. They are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beneficial for heart health.
  • Macadamia nuts – Macadamia nuts are a good alternative to pecans as they have a mild flavor and good crunch to them. They are also higher in healthy monounsaturated fats compared to other types of nuts.
