Granny’s Pecan Pralines

March 14, 2017

Granny’s Pecan Pralines

3 cups white sugar
1 cup light brown sugar
1 1/2 cups water
3 cups broken pecan meats or halves
1 Tbsp butter or shortening
1 tsp. vanilla

Over medium low heat, in heavy sauce pan, bring sugars and water to a boil.  When sugars are dissolved, add pecans; reduce heat to low, simmer gently uncovered, stirring occasionally, for about 15 to 20 minutes or until mixture grains when metal spoon is rubbed against side of pot.


Remove from heat.   Add butter and vanilla; stir mixture until it appears to granulate and stick to the spoon.


Drop by spoonful onto wax or parchment paper or pour onto a wax or parchment paper lined cookie sheet.   Allow to cool before removing.  I poured onto cookie sheet, after it is cooled…break up and Enjoy!


If you don’t cook this long enough, put it back and cook longer.  If you’ve cooked it too long and it gets hard before you’ve finished dropping onto wax paper, add a little more water and return to simmer once more.
