Creole Pralines

September 9, 2016


1Put all ingredients except the pecans in a 3 quart sauce pan and cook for about 20 minutes, after boiling starts, stirring occasionally. Add the pecans and cook the mixture until the liquid forms a soft ball when a little is dropped into cold water. Stir well and then drop by spoonfuls on waxed paper. Place a few sheets of newspaper beneath the waxed paper. I find it convenient to place a small table near the stove, over which I put a few sheets of newspaper, and then put the waxed paper over that.


2 cups granulated sugar

1 cup dark or light brown sugar

1 stick 1/4 lb butter

1 cup milk

2 tbsp Karo syrup

4 cups pecan halves (If large halves, crush in small pieces.)
