Directions:
In a large pot combine first four ingredients, cook over medium heat stirring continuously, being sure to scrape bottom of pan each time, until mixture forms a soft ball in a cup of cold water. Now add the broken pieces of pecans and butter, continuing to stir until butter has melted. Take from heat.

Cool slightly for about 2 minutes and start beating the pralines until mixture becomes creamy. It will change texture and color.

At first signs of change, drop by tablespoons onto wax paper. You must be careful because this will harden very fast after it becomes creamy.
