Maw Maw's Pralines

Maw Maw's Pralines

2 c brown sugar
1 c white sugar
1 c pecans
1/3 - 1/2 stick butter
3/4 - 1 c milk
1 tsp vanilla

Heat all except vanilla--stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Let it cook to a soft ball--medium first, then low heat. Take off heat and add vanilla. Cool without stirring. Beat until almost losing gloss--don't overdo. Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper laid on newspaper to help pralines from cracking.

(My Maw Maw makes this recipe from memory, and dictated the directions to me as she cooked it. I think I wrote down this recipe when I was about 12. My pralines are never quite as good as Maw Maw's.)

I had pralines onces on a visit to Florida, so they are always associated in my mind with sun and a great vacation, seeing relatives and escaping snow.
