No matter how you say it, pralines are a southern staple that you can’t resist, especially on National Praline Day. From almonds to pecans and white sugar to brown, this sweet treat has come a long way since 1750 Louisiana.

As a child, I could often be found with a praline in my hand. I was even known to fall asleep with a half-eaten praline in my mouth. Now that I am older, there are even more ways to enjoy my favorite dessert. Here are four of my favorite recipes that celebrate the praline:
