Pecan Pralines

These are fairly simple to make. I suggest suckering someone else into the stirring as the cool. You won't regret it. If you're feeling extra motivated, these would be wonderful coated in chocolate.

Pecan Pralines
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
1/2 c evaporated milk
4 TBSP frozen butter
1 TBSP vanilla extract
3/4 c chopped pecans
Combine sugars and milk in a large saucepan. The mixture will resemble sludge. Heat over medium high to 236F or soft ball stage. Remove pan from heat. Add in butter, vanilla, and pecans. Stir with a wooden spoon until shine leaves the mixture, about 10 minutes. Drop by tablespoon onto waxed paper. Cool to harden.

This recipe is great. To save even more, you can use the leftovers in other praline based recipes and meat glazes.
