Ingredients
  Firmly packed brown sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Granulated sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Light corn syrup 3 Tablespoon
  Salt 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Light cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Butter 4 Tablespoon
  Maple 2 Teaspoon
  Shelled pecan halves 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
Directions

1 Butter a heavy 3-quart saucepan on the inside.
2 Combine sugars, syrup, salt, cream and butter in the saucepan and stir until well blended.
3 Cook slowly over medium heat until candy reaches the medium firm-ball stage (246°F). Remove from heat.
4 Let candy stand undisturbed for a few minutes. Then add flavoring and pecans and beat a few whips until creamy.
5 Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. If candy begins to harden, add a few drops of light cream; place over the lowest heat of the range and stir until creamy; it should drop smoothly from the spoon.
