Store in tightly covered container in cool place. Will keep for up to 1
week, but are best within 1-2 days.

Chocolate-Almond Lace Cookies. Substitue almond extract and almonds for
vanilla and pecans. Use Amaretto for praline liqueur in frosting.

Praline Baskets. Omit cocoa powder. Drop batter by half teaspoons onto
baking sheets and bake as directed. When taken from oven, immediately
press into lightly grased mini muffin tins and allow to cool. Great for
dollops of mousse or whatever. Contributor: "The Holidays" John Hadamuscin
