Combine all ingredients and bring to a soft ball stage (238-240) - stirring constantly.

Remove from heat. Stir until mixture thickens, becomes creamy and cloudy, add pecans.

Spoon out onto buttered wax paper, foil or parchment paper. Makes 10-50 pralines - depending on our spoon size. When using wax paper, be sure to buffer with newspaper underneath, as hot wax will transfer to whatever surface is underneath.
