      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).
