RECIPE: aunt lo dees old fashioned pralines

lizzierouxApril 16, 2007

The only problem with these is that you can't stop eating them!

2 & 1/3 c. light brown sugar

1 T. butter (please use butter)

1/4 c. water

2 & 1/4 c. pecan pieces & halves, toasted

Using a heavy medium pan bring add the sugar, butter and water to a boil over medium heat.

Add the pecan and stir constantly until the candy reaches the soft boil stage, about 240.

Remove from the heat stirring constantly for about one minute or so until it is not glossy.

Immediately drop by tablespoons onto a well buttered pan or wax paper, or marble slab.

Allow to dry thoroughly before eating.

I'll bet they'd still be good if you cheated and ate them early before they were completely dry! I love pralines.
