  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon

Southern Pralines Recipe: (Recipe from Taste of Home.com – http://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/southern-pralines)

  • 3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup cubed butter
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the brown sugar, cream, corn syrup and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Cook until a candy thermometer reads 230° (thread stage), stirring occasionally.
  2. Carefully stir in pecans and butter. Cook, stirring occasionally, until a candy thermometer reads 236° (soft-ball stage).
  3. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla. Beat with a wooden spoon until candy thickens and begins to lose its gloss, about 4-5 minutes.
  4. Quickly drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper; spread to form 2-in. patties. Let stand until set. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen.
Editor’s Note: We recommend that you test your candy thermometer before each use by bringing water to a boil; the thermometer should read 212°. Adjust your recipe temperature up or down based on your test.
