Directions:
Combine all ingredients and bring to a "softball stage" (238-240 degrees), STIRRING CONSTANTLY. Remove from heat.

Stir until mixture thickens (AGAIN STIRRING CONSTANTLY), becomes creamy and cloudy, and pecans stay suspended in mixture. Spoon out on buttered waxed paper, aluminum foil or parchment paper. When using waxed paper, be sure to buffer with newspaper underneath, as hot wax will transfer to whatever is beneath. Makes 1-50 Pralines depending on size.
