 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2       c            Sugar
      1/2   c            Light corn syrup
      1/2   c            Water
    2       c            Pecan halves
      1/4   c            Butter
    1       T            Vanilla
 
   Heat the sugar, syrup, water, and pecans in a heavy
   saucepan until the sugar is disolved.  Bring the
   mixture to the boil, stirring occasionally, until it
   reaches the soft ball stage (240F).  Remove the
   saucepan from the heat and add butter and vanilla.
      Allow candy to cool.  Whip until the mixture
   gradually changes to an opaque color and becomes
   creamy.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a buttered cookie
   sheet and allow to harden. Makes two dozen.
   From Nathalie Dupree’s New Southern Cooking
   Nathalie Dupree writes, “Pralines are traditionally
   given as Christmas gifts.  Their sweetness will linger
   in your mouth long after the candy is gone.”
