Number of Servings: 30

2 Cup(s) Pecan halves
2 Cup(s) Light brown sugar, firmly
1 Cup(s) Granulated Sugar
1 1/4 Cup(s) Heavy cream
3/4 Cup(s) Milk
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla extract
Roughly chop half the pecans and set all the nuts aside. Line 2-3cookie
sheets with parchment paper.2 Stir the brown and white sugars, cream
and milk together in aheavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Stir
continuously until themixture reaches the soft-ball stage (see Cook's
Tip).3 Remove from the heat immediately and beat with an electric
beater or aballoon whisk until the mixture loses its sheen and becomes
creamy intexture and grainy looking. This could take 15 minutes by hand
or about5 minutes with an electric beater.4 Stir in the vanilla and
both batches of nuts and drop tablespoons ofthe mixture onto the lined
cookie sheets, allowing it to spread of itsown accord. Allow to cool
and set at room temperature. Store betweenlayers of waxed paper in a
tight-lidded tin. Makes about 30 pieces.COOK'S TIPA mixture has reached
the soft-ball stage when a teaspoonful droppedinto cold water quickly
sets to a soft ball. As this stage approaches, aspoonful of the mixture
dribbled on the surface of the mixture in thepan will hold its trail.
Test frequently towards the end of the cookingtime unless you are using
a sugar thermometer.Creative Cooking Library, The Cajun & Creole
