New Mexican Pralines

Pralines make a wonderful dessert following Mexican food. They are great for buffets when individually wrapped in colorful tissue paper and tied with jumbo yarn. For holidays and parties, I’ve often tied them to a pinon tree encircling the patio or to a branch of a cedar I used for the center piece.

Yield: 4 dozen

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 cups granulated sugar
3 Tablespoons light corn syrup
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup light cream
4 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons maple flavoring
1 ½ cups shelled pecan halves

1. Butter a heavy 3-quart saucepan on the inside

2. Combine sugars, syrup, salt cream and butter in the saucepan and stir until well blended.

3. Cook slowly over medium heat until candy reaches the medium firm-ball stage (246F) Remove from heat.

4. Let candy stand undisturbed for a few minutes. Then add flavoring and pecans and beat a few whips until creamy.

5. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. If candy begins to harden, add a few drops of light cream; place over the lowest heat of the range and stir until creamy; it should drop smoothly from spoon.
