Mixture should be at a low boil. Stir bottom and sides continuously. Cook for about 4 minutes until a drop of the mixture forms a "hard-ball" drop when placed in a cup of cold water, or mixture reaches 260 degrees F. Remove from stove and beat briskly for 2 minutes until mixture cools, thickens, and becomes creamy.

On large pieces of waxed paper, aluminum foil, or oiled cookie sheets, drop 2 or 3 pecans with a tablespoon of mixture for each praline. When all of mixture has been poured, let cool thoroughly. Store in airtight containers. Serves 10 - yields forty 2-inch pralines.
