Praline Cookies

These sometimes get identified in boxes “parline” or “pauline” cookies. The Southern pronunciation of praline can tumble out of the mouth to sound something like “praw-leen,” so people who heard the name but didn’t see it written started writing it various other ways.

From a box sold in Canby, Oregon.
