My great grandmother's recipe. Growing up there was a pecan tree in our yard, there's no better ingredient in this recipe than fresh home-picked pecans!

How To Make g.g.'s pralines
Butter sides of a 4 quart pot.
Combine sugars and half-and-half. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until boiling.
Reduce heat to medium-low, continue to stir and boil till soft ball stage (234 degrees).
Remove from heat; add butter but DO NOT STIR!
Let cool 30 minutes then stir in pecans (you may leave a few out to press into the top of your candies).
Beat vigorously about 3 minutes till thickened but still glossy.
Working quickly, drop by spoonfuls onto waxed paper. (If desired press pecan halves into candies while still warm.)
Let cool completely.
