Have you ever tried making pralines? A lot of folks never try them because they think they're too hard! Here's the easy way to make these smooth, delicious treats in about 15 minutes! Step 1 Combine sugar, butter (do not substitute margarine) and pecans in the heavy saucepan on medium high heat. Stir gently until it comes to a bubbly boil. The mixture will be somewhat thick and will bubble instead of coming to a rolling boil. Reduce heat and continue stirring the boiling mixture for three minutes. Step 2 Remove from heat and add the vanilla, milk and powdered sugar. Add the sugar slowly and stir quickly to mix well. If too thin to hold it's form, add very small amounts of powdered sugar until thick enough to spoon out into "blobs". If too thick, add just a few drops of milk until is smooth and still holds it's form. Step 3 Drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper and allow to cool. Enjoy!
