I grew up in New Orleans, and I always make Pralines at Christmas for my west coast friends......
1. Combine sugar and milk in a saucepan, bring to a boil and continue to cook until a drop forms in a soft ball in cold water, stirring often.
2. Add butter and pecans; bring back to soft-ball stage while stirring constantly.
3. Remove from heat, add vanilla and beat until mixture begins to thicken.
4. Drop by teaspoon on wax paper. Makes about 30 pralines.
