I was doing a project on cajun and creole food, so I invested in some help from Susan Merrick who owns and operates She helped me out with these recipes!! So I want to thank her!

What a great and "Easy" way to make Pralines!This might be bad, because I'll make them more often now! :-)Also never used condensed milk before. Great recipe!

  2. In a large heavy saucepan combine the brown sugar, sugar, milk, butter, and vanilla and stir until blended. Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat.
  3. Continue boiling until a candy thermometer registers 238 degrees F., or the candy reaches the soft ball stage.
  4. Remove from heat, add the pecans, and beat well with a wooden spoon for no more than 1 minute.
  5. Immediately pour the candy onto the buttered jelly-roll pan. Let the candy stand for 1 hour, or until it has cooled (dried).
