Another recipe from a dear friend. She has actually joined JAP but she hasn't signed the guestbook nor has she posted a recipe. If she doesn't hurry and start posting recipes, she won't have any to post b/c I'm posting some she has given me over the years. I hope she see this!!!

1 c
light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1/2 c
sour cream
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 c
pecan halves

Directions Step-By-Step

Line a cookie with waxed paper. In a saucepan, combine both sugars. Mix in the sour cream and cook on med-low heat until disolved. Now cook slowly to the soft-ball stage then remove from heat immediately. Do not over cook! Add in the vanilla & pecans.
Stir to coat all pecans and quickly take out each pecan, one at a time, and place on the waxed paper. Let stand 10 to 12 hours to dry before storing.
It does take a while to remove each individual pecan from the saucepan so last year I dumped them out onto the waxed paper and seperated them once they had cooled down enough to handle.
