Buttermilk Pecan Pralines

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Line 2 large baking sheets with waxed paper and set aside.
  • In a large (5 qt or larger) pot, bring the buttermilk, sugar, corn syrup, baking soda and salt to a boil over medium heat.
  • Stir continuously until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture reaches 236F (soft ball stage).
  • Note that the baking soda causes the mixture to foam and rise as it begins to boil so be careful.
  • Once the mixture has reached the softball stage, remove from heat and stir in pecans, vanilla, and butter.
  • Beat by hand until the mixture begin to hold it’s own shape. It will be thick and creamy. This can take awhile. It helps to have a partner in the kitchen to hand this task off to 🙂
  • Once the mixture thickens, quickly drop by spoonfuls onto the waxed paper to. Let cool.
  • Store in airtight containers for up to 2weeks.
