24 NILLA Wafers
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2/3 cup whipping cream
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons margarine or butter
1 cup PLANTERS Pecans, chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Cover 2 cookie sheets with wax paper; place 12 wafers 2-inches apart on each sheet.
Heat sugar, brown sugar, cream and water in 3-quart saucepan on medium heat, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves. Cook without stirring until temperature reaches 235 degrees F (soft ball stage).
Add margarine; do not stir. Cool mixture to 150 degrees F, about 30 minutes.
Add pecans and vanilla extract to cooled sugar mixture. With wooden spoon, beat 2 to 3 minutes until candy begins to thicken, but is still glossy. Quickly pour 1 tablespoonful praline mixture over each wafer. (If mixture becomes stiff, stir in a few drops water.)
Cool pralines completely until firm; peel from wax paper.
Store in an airtight container.
Yield: 2 dozen
