As I get older it seems my hands get slower they were great but looked like I didn't get them out of the boiler fast enough. Maybe next time Honey would help me scoop them out?
- 2 cups of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups pecans
Combine first 5 ingredients in a heavy saucepan; mix well. Cook over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves; cook until mixture reaches soft ball stage (232 degrees). Remove from heat; add vanilla and beat until creamy. Stir in pecans. Drop from a spoon onto waxed paper; let stand until firm.
Makes about 1-1/2 to 3 dozen, depending on how large you make 'em!
