Note: Sometimes the simplest things are the most delicious. Maybe that is why Southerners love their pralines so much?


1 1/4 cups of sugar
3/4 cups of brown sugar
1/2 cup of evaporated milk
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups pecans

Put sugars & milk in heavy bottom pan & cook to soft ball stage. Take off fire & add frozen butter, vanilla & pecans & stir until shine leaves mixture & then spoon on waxed paper. Very easy & makes the best pralines ever.

oh, my holy crow. I am so glad I missed praline week. If I had to read one of these each day, I would have gone CRAZY! Now I can at least get it all over with in one fell swoop!

I would totally marry pralines. I mean that from the bottom of my stomach, er, heart!
