Pralines Recipes

Pralines I


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup half and half
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 2 cups pecan halves


Combine all ingredients in a large heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring gently, until sugar dissolves. Cover and cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes to wash down sugar crystals from sides of pan. Uncover and cook to soft ball stage, stirring constantly. Remove saucepan from heat, and beat mixture with a wooden spoon just until mixture begins to thicken. Working rapidly, drop candy mixture by tablespoonfuls onto greased wax paper; let stand until candy is firm.
