I just made this and it is delicious and turned out great! Since pecans are so expensive, I only committed to making half a batch of the candy. I didn't have any heavy cream on hand so I substituted 3/4 cup milk and 1/3 cup butter. I cooked the two together on low heat in a pan until the butter melted into them milk and poured it in the recipe. My candy thermometer is MIA so after testing it about 5 times in cold water, I cooked it until the soft ball stage which worked just fine. Aunt Bill must not have had an electric mixer but I do. To heck with mixing this with a wooden spoon! I used my mixer and beat the mixture on low until the gloss went away in just a few minutes. When it came time to put the concoction in the pan, I put butter on my hands and stuffed it into the pan and made the top look smooth and creamy. This is a hit with my family. Thank you! :0)
