Pecan Praline Recipe

Pecan Praline Recipe


1 Cup white sugar
1 dash of salt
2 tbsp white Karo syrup
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 cup pecan halves


Mix the sugar, salt, milk and Karo syrup in a large bowl.
Cook to soft ball stage and remove from heat.

Once it's removed from heat, add in the butter and vanilla.
Beat until cool and then drop by tablespoon fulls onto wax paper.

Once they have firmed, store in a closed container 
(if you have any to store once everyone finds out what you've made)

Makes about 2 dozen!

This is an absolute favorite of almost EVERY Louisiana family...

Sadly, I'd have to make these, and hide them, when my husband isn't home now that he is a diabetic. I can't think of a possible way to make a sugar free version of these... being they are almost pure sugar.

If you try these... let me know how you like them!!
