Mexican Pralines

These pralines are not the soft shiny kind found in New Orleans.  They are firm and opaque and so delicious.  A perfect ending to a great Fajita dinner.

1/2-cup brown sugar

1/2 stick butter

1/2-cup milk

1 Tablespoon corn syrup

1-teaspoon vanilla

2 cups pecan halves

  1. Combine the sugars, butter, milk and corn syrup in a heavy 2 quart saucepan and cook at a low boil for 15 – 20 minutes. Stir constantly.

  1. Add the vanilla and stir to combine.

  1. Add the pecans and remove from the heat. Stir to coat the pecans.
