How to make it

  • Butter a medium saucepan . It makes it easier to clean. Add cream and place on stove over high heat. Bring to boil and immediatley add the sugar and stir rapidly until it disolves. Stir in vanilla and pecans. Lower heat to medium and stir frequently. Bring to soft ball stage (236 on candy thermometer). Remove from heat and beat in butter. Candy will lose its gloss and become cloudy. On waxed paper, drop good size spoonfulls. Stir ocasionally to keep ingredients combined. When pralines have cooled, remove. They will be hard to remove later.

    Sounds real good....you can spray the wax paper lightly with
    Pam....freezer paper shiny side up goes a long way also. I
    will try your recipe to see if my Louisiana pralines compare.
    My wife and I used to sell our candy from our kitchen......
    divinity...pralines ....and chocolate pecan....have gotten
    old and cannot get all my orders out on time.....so we
    just do Christmas candy for neighborhood gifts nowadays.
    People seem to like that idea better and it's more personal.
    By the way, I'm an old Marine Corps cook from the Vietnam
    era, having gone to 3 cook schools before shipping out....
    never used a field burner before then. How surprised I
    was....12 field burners and a helper going to very near
    the DMZ to cook for 30 hungry men...for 2 weeks...
    then rotating. Semper Fi......Ken

    Hope you know this caused a inch or two oh the hips! Had some pecans I wanted to use up so made these this last weekend... Good thing we had company or I would have eaten the whole batch..
    I used foil to put them on, with just a light spray of Pam.. as I was afraid I would let them set to long... worked great
    Wonderful!
