      I find it is easier to remove them if you place a cloth dish towel on counter and put your piece of waxed paper on top of dish towel.

      I haven't personally made this recipe, but I have had pralines Luby herself has made from this recipe (she was kind enough to send some along with a cookbook in the cookbook swap) and, let me tell you, these are fantastic! The perfect praline taste and texture I remember from a childhood visit to Louisiana. Yum!
