  1. Lightly grease the inside of a 4-quart saucepan. Line a baking sheet with waxed paper.
  2. Stir the brown sugar, white sugar, baking soda, sour cream, and corn syrup together in the oiled pan; place over low heat. Cook and stir continually until the sugars are dissolved. Wipe any sugar crystals above the liquid line with a pastry brush moistened with cold water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Do not stir once the sugar syrup begins to boil. Heat to 240 degrees F (115 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat; stir in the butter, vanilla, and chopped pecans.
  3. Drop spoonfuls of the mixture 2 inches apart onto the prepared baking sheets. Press a pecan half into the top of each praline. Allow to cool completely. Store in an airtight container in a cool place.

The taste is very good, but wax paper is not what you should use. The hot candy will melt the wax. Unless you like paper stuck to the bottom of your pralines, you will be disappointed. I threw ...

These were awesome! A big hit in my house. These are going on my list for Christmas baskets. I liked that they were very easy---no need to stand at the stove stirring for a long time. Once it s...

Great recipe, just not user friendly as it is hard to decipher when the caramel sauce is done. I think I overcooked mine:(

Really a good recipe and they were eaten as soon as I finished. This is a sign of a great praline. I made two other batches and they came out hard and gooey ... sad. I recommend being patient...
