DIRECTIONS

  • Place the sugars, the salt, the whole milk and the evaporated milk in a heavy bottomed saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  • When the temperature reaches 228 degrees on candy thermometer, stir in the butter and pecans and continue to cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture reaches 236 degrees.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and allow the mixture to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Add the extracts and beat the mixture with a wooden spoon until the candy coats the pecans but does not lose its gloss.
  • Drop the pralines 1 tablespoon at a time onto a well-greased piece of aluminum foil or a slab of confectioner's marble.
  • Allow the pralines to cool before serving.
