Directions:
In large pot, stir buttermilk, sugar and baking soda until sugar is completely dissolved. Using low to medium heat bring mixture to a boil while stirring constantly. Continue until mixture has turned to a light brownish color and has reached a soft ball stage (syrup will form a soft ball when a half-teaspoon or so is dropped into a cup of cold water). Remove from heat and add the pecan halves, butter and vanilla. Beat mixture briskly until it becomes glossy and starts to thicken. Quickly spoon onto a sheet of buttered waxed paper making little patties. Let cool completely before removing from paper.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
In 2001, Teresa found Colony Milk Glass dishes that were additional pieces to Grandmother's china pattern. They were the white dishes we used at Christmas Brunch. When the Milk Glass punch bowl arrived, the lady who sold the dishes on eBay included this recipe. These are called in Cajun, "Lagniappe" which means "a little something extra."
