Maple Pecan Pralines
|Granulated sugar||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Firmly packed light brown sugar||2 Cup (32 tbs)|
|White corn syrup||3 Tablespoon|
|Bottled milk/10 tablespoon evaporated milk and 10 tablespoon water||1 1⁄4 Tablespoon|
|Maple flavoring||2 Teaspoon|
|Pecan meats||1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs), unbroken|
Combine the sugars, corn syrup, salt, and milk in a saucepan.
Cook gently, while stirring constantly, to 236 F., or until a little of the mixture dropped in cold water forms a soft ball.
Remove from heat and cool to 110 F., or until lukewarm.
Stir in maple flavoring and pecans.
Beat the praline mixture with a long handled spoon until mixture begins to thicken.
Drop quickly from a spoon onto waxed paper to form patties about 4" in diameter.
When firm, wrap in waxed paper.
