   Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  Cups          sugar
      3/4  Cup           brown sugar
      1/2  Cup           milk
    6      Tablespoons   butter
    1 1/2  Cups          pecans -- broken
    1      Teaspoon      vanilla extract
 
 Before making candy, prepare several layers of newspaper and place on
 a flat surface.  Place a layer of wax paper on top of the newspaper.
 The newspaper layers are important because the candy mixture will be
 very hot.
 
 Combine all ingredients except vanilla and bring to a boil.  Cook to
 soft ball stage (238-240 degrees) on a candy thermometer.  Remove from
 heat and stir in vanilla.  Keep stirring until nuts no longer come to
 the top of the mixture.  Quickly drop by spoonfuls on prepared wax
 paper.  When cool, remove from wax paper and store.
