Pecan Pralines

1  Cup light brown sugar
1/2  Cup granulated sugar
1/2  Cup heavy cream
4  Tbsp. unsalted butter
2  Tbsp. water
1  Cup pecan halves

Directions:

In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the light brown sugar, granulated sugar, heavy cream, butter, and water.

Place over a medium-high heat and stir constantly until the pralines reach the softball stage, 238 to 240 degrees F.

Add the pecans to the candy, and pull the pan off of the stove.

Continue to stir the candy vigorously with a wooden spoon until the candy cools, and the pecans remain suspended in the candy, about 2 minutes.

Spoon the pralines out onto a parchment or aluminum foil lined sheet pan and cool completely before serving.

About Delicious Goodies

Love life, the outdoors, photography, reading, cooking, baking, spending time with family. Just a girl next door in what I call paradise - Southern California. By no means a professional cook, I do enjoy cooking, trying new recipes and sharing with others. I hope you enjoy what you find here! I have one Vegan in the family, so we are always making two meals, rather fun, and it allows us to try new ideas. When I was in Middle School I use to help my Grandmother make cookie canisters - every year at Christmas we would make an assortment of cookies, breads, candy and put them in a wrapped canister and give them as gifts. I still enjoy this idea, although haven't done it that much - at least not an assortment of goodies. I think this year will be the year I go back to that idea and see how everyone likes it. Have a wonderful week, and spread kindness everywhere you go!
