DIRECTIONS

  • Lightly grease the inside of a 4-quart saucepan.
  • Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  • Stir the brown sugar, white sugar, baking soda, sour cream, and corn syrup together in the oiled pan; place over low heat.
  • Cook and stir continually until the sugars are dissolved.
  • Wipe any sugar crystals above the liquid line with a pastry brush moistened with cold water.
  • Bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Do not stir once the sugar syrup begins to boil.
  • Heat to 240 degrees F (115 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface.
  • Remove from heat; stir in the butter, vanilla, and chopped pecans.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the mixture 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets.
  • Press a pecan half into the top of each praline.
  • Allow to cool completely.
  • Store in an airtight container in a cool place.
