       Title: DORIS'S PRALINES
  Categories: Cajun, Candies
       Yield: 12 servings
  
       4 c  Sugar
       5 c  Pecans
       4 tb Karo syrup
       1 tb Butter
       1 cn Condensed milk
       1 ts Vanilla
       1 cn Water
  
   Mix all ingredients except butter, vanilla, and pecans.
   Cook on low fire until the mixture forms a soft ball in
   cold water.  Remove from fire.  Add butter, vanilla,
   and pecans, and beat until the mixture holds its
   shape.  Spoon onto buttered wax paper (Add old
   newspaper under your wax paper.)
   If candy gets hard before all is spooned out, add a
   little water, and heat over.  Or you can let it stand
   on low heat while spooning out.
   If you have never tasted freshly made pralines, made
   from fresh Louisiana pecans, you have just never
   really lived. Justin Wilson says, "Doris is the much
   better half (wife) of my good friend Gordon Martin,
   the sheriff of St. James Parish.  Every Christmas Eve
   we go by to see them after watching the bonfires that
   are burned on the levees along the Mississippi River
   to light the way for Papa Noel (Santa Claus).
