Grease sides and bottom of large saucepan. Add sugar, cream, Karo syrup, and butter. Cook, stirring constantly, to soft ball stage or 238 degrees F on candy thermometer. Remove from heat and add pecans. Return to heat and cook to hard ball stage or 250 degrees F, about 1 hour total cooking time. Add vanilla. Let cool slightly and drop on greased cooked sheet, but not on waxed paper! When cold, wrap in squares of plastic wrap.
