1 cup brown sugar
⅓ cup heavy whipping cream
¼ cups salted butter (half a stick)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups pecan halves
Line a large cookie sheet (or two) with parchment paper.
Place the brown sugar, whipping cream, butter & vanilla in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil for about 1 minute, then remove it from the heat. Immediately whisk in the powdered sugar, then gently stir in the pecans.
Allow the mixture to thicken and cool slightly, but it only takes a minute or two.
Drop heaping spoonfuls, I use my table spoon, of the praline mixture onto paper and allow it to cool and set up for at least 30 minutes.
