I grew up in New Orleans, and I always make Pralines at Christmas for 
my west coast friends......

2 cups light brown sugar
1/2 cup of evaporated milk (NOT condensed)
1/4 cup of butter
2 1/3 cup of pecans (whole or chopped)
1 teaspoon of vanilla

1. Combine sugar and milk in a saucepan, bring to a boil and continue 
   to cook until a drop forms in a soft ball in cold water, stirring often.
2. Add butter and pecans; bring back to soft-ball stage while stirring

3. Remove from heat, add vanilla and beat until mixture begins to thicken.

4. Drop by teaspoon on wax paper.

makes about 30 pralines
