    2      cups          chopped pecans
    2      tablespoons   butter or margarine -- melted
    2      cups          sugar -- divided
    6                    eggs -- beaten
    1      12oz can      evaporated milk
    1      5oz can       evaporated milk
    1 1/3  cups          milk
    1      14oz can      sweetened condensed milk
    1      tablespoon    vanilla extract
    2      cups          whipping cream -- whipped
 
 
 Sauté pecans in butter, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes
        or until toasted. Set aside to cool.
 
        Combine 1 cup sugar, eggs, evaporated milk, and milk in a
        large saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly,
        20 minutes or until mixture reaches 160 degrees (do not
        boil). Remove from heat; let cool. Stir in sweetened
        condensed milk and vanilla. Cover and chill at least 1 hour.
        Fold in whipped cream.
 
        Place remaining 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan; cook over
        medium heat, stirring mixture constantly, until sugar
        dissolves and forms a smooth liquid. Stir in the sauteed
        pecans. (Mixture may form lumps.)
 
        Stir pecan mixture into custard; break apart pecan lumps.
 
        Pour into freezer can of a 5-quart hand-turned or electric
        freezer. Freeze according to manufacturer’s instructions.
        Let ripen at least 1 hour.
