Every Christmas I insist my sister Elaine make her famous pralines…. here is the recipe
- 2 cups light brown sugar
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup pecan halves
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Remove from fire and stir in vanilla and pecans. Stir until the mixture begins to thicken and becomes sugary (you can taste the sugar). Let the mixture cool somewhat before large spoonfuls of pralines on silicon sheets (or wax paper on cookie sheets).
When completely cool, wrap each piece in a cellophane bag. They are delicate so be careful when stacking.
Best made when no moisture in the weather.
