Praline Pecans

by admin on December 19, 2009

I used this recipe for the Carnesecci and Martin wedding receptions. Lightly sweet taste without overpowering the flavor of the pecans. I strongly recommend doubling this recipe because 3 1/2 cups just isn’t enough of this yummy treat.

3 ½ cups pecans
¼ cup corn syrup
¼ cup packed brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp baking soda

Grease 13X9 pan. If doubling, lightly grease a large, cookie sheet with low sides.

Put pecans in a bowl.

Combine corn syrup, sugar and butter in 2 cup glass measuring cup (larger if doubling recipe) in microwave. Stir, nuke for 1 minute or until boiling. Stir in vanilla and baking soda until well blended. The mixture will foam when you add the vanilla and baking soda.

Drizzle over pecans. Stir with wooden spoon. Put pecans on baking sheet/pan and spread out.

Bake one hour at 250 degrees, stirring every 20 minutes.

Lay a large sheet of parchment paper on the kitchen counter, remove pecans from oven and spread out evenly on the paper. Be sure to separate clumps of pecans.

When they are cool, package them for gifts or store in an airtight container to enjoy yourself.
