Patter Fam Sauces

Pralines
Serves 12
2 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup heavy cream
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 tablespoons water
3 cup pecan halves
 

In a heavy-bottomed pot, combine the light brown sugar, granulated sugar, heavy cream, butter, and water. Place over a medium-high heat and stir constantly until the pralines reach the softball stage, 240-245 degrees F. Add the pecans to the candy, and pull the pan off of the stove. Continue to stir the candy vigorously with a wooden spoon until the candy cools, and the pecans remain suspended in the candy, about 2 minutes. Allow to sit for 5 -  8 minutes until pralines thicken slightly.  Working quickly, spoon the pralines out onto a parchment or aluminum foil lined sheet pan and cool completely before serving.
