Instructions
  1. Line a baking sheet with foil and grease with butter. Grease a small spoon for scooping the pralines and set aside with the baking sheet.
  2. Add the 4 tablespoons butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, heavy cream and corn syrup to a 2 quart or larger heavy bottom sauce pot with a candy thermometer attached and bring to a boil over high heat.
  3. Whisk the mixture to dissolve the sugar then allow it to continue to cook until it reaches firm ball stage, 246 degrees °F, for about 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from the heat and allow it to cool, undisturbed, for 4 minutes.
  5. Add the pecans and vanilla to the pot and using a wooden spoon, beat the mixture vigorously until thickened and the nuts are suspended, about 2 minutes. Working as quickly as you can, portion the pralines with the greased spoon onto the prepared pan. Allow the pralines to cool completely before serving.

Instructions
  1. In a saucepan cook the milk and sugars together on medium heat. Stir continuously so sugar does not burn. Cook the mixture until it is at the “soft ball stage.” This requires dropping a tiny drop of the mixture into cold water; the mixture should turn into a ball when it is in the water.
  2. Turn off the heat and add remaining ingredients.
  3. Mix the ingredients until the butter is melted and the pecans are well coated.
  4. Continue to mix until the mixture cools and forms sugar on the side of the pan.
  5. Using a small spoon scoop and drop the mixture onto the greased wax paper.
  6. Let the candy to cool until dry. Candy is dry when it can be taken off wax paper in one piece.
