    Worth the effort to master the art of praline-making. Give as gifts, great for holiday parties or to bring to the office. See note below for the option of toasted pecans.

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cream, milk, butter, and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, to 230°F Lower heat slightly if the mixture threatens to boil over.
    2. 2
      Add the pecans and continue cooking, stirring constantly, to 236°F The mixture should form a soft ball when a little is dropped in cold water. Remove from the heat and add vanilla; let stand for about 5 minutes. Stir with a wooden spoon until the mixture is thickened and slightly creamy, about 1 to 1 1/2 minutes.
    3. 3
      Using a tablespoon or small cookie scoop, spoon the pralines onto a sheet of parchment paper or waxed paper. If the mixture becomes grainy, heat and stir over medium heat for a few seconds, or until it can be easily scooped and dropped.
    4. 4
      Optional Toasted Pecans:.
    5. 5
      Heat oven to 350°. Spread chopped pecans out on a large baking sheet. Bake for about 5 minutes, or until the chopped pecans are lightly browned and aromatic. This can also be achieved by microwaving pecans on a microwave-safe plate in 30 second increments.

      Very good recipe! I used all half and half because I had a quart that needed to be used up and a whole stick of salted butter because I didnt see any reason to leave 2 lonely tablespoons behind. I also used roasted and salted pecans because I enjoy a touch of saltiness in my sweets therefore I left the salt in the recipe out. And I did add a tablespoon of "bourbon" for flavor and karo to keep it from crystalizing on me. They turned out great! Thanks for this recipe and I hope you dont mind me posting the changes I made. I only made the changes because the cooking bug wont let me follow a recipe to the letter. I will make these again for the holidays and in the meantime I am going to donate these to our local Volunteer Fire Fighter fund raiser and hope they bring a few bucks for our guys and gals that risk their lives to keep us safe.
