Loma Linda Pralines

Makes 24 Pralines

 

These are the kind of simple pralines they serve at Loma Linda and other old-fashioned Tex-Mex restaurants.

1 cup light brown sugar, firmly packed
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon light corn syrup
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup chopped pecans
Aluminum foil, sprayed with nonstick cooking spray

Combine the sugars, syrup, butter, and 5 tablespoons water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil. Add the pecans and continue cooking until the mixture reaches the soft ball stage (238 degrees F). Remove the pan from the heat and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon until the candy begins to turn opaque. Quickly drop spoonfuls onto aluminum foil and allow to harden. Store the pralines in an airtight tin.
