Ingredients

  • 2

    cups sugar

  • 3/4

    cup milk

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking soda

  • 1

    tablespoon butter

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons vanilla

  • 1 1/2

    cups pecan halves or pieces

Directions

•Mix sugar, milk and baking soda in a large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly and scraping the bottom of the pan to prevent scorching. •After 12 to 15 minutes, the mixture will start to thicken. Using a candy thermometer, bring to soft-ball stage (235 to 240 degrees). Or, if you don’t have a thermometer, drop a small amount of milk syrup into cold water. If it forms a ball in the water, the syrup has cooked sufficiently. •Once syrup is ready, remove from heat and add butter and vanilla; mix until creamy. Then stir in pecans so they are thoroughly coated. •Quickly drop mixture by heaping tablespoonsful onto a buttered baking sheet or a piece of waxed paper. Let cool until solid. •When cool, place candies in a covered container. They will keep two to three days at room temperature.
