Pecan Pralines

4 oz. butter
4 cups white sugar
12 oz. can evaporate milk
2 cups pecans

Combine butter, milk, and sugar in a heavy 5-quart pot and cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture boils then stir continuously until the mixture reaches the “soft ball stage”. Do not cook on high heat. Remove the pot from heat and let cool a bit while stirring until the mixture loses its glossy appearance. Add pecans and stir until the mixture starts to thicken. Drop by spoonful on foil or waxed paper
