Adventine Praying I.

Amelie Shaw's Christmas Prailine Recipe:


2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
Sprinkle of salt
2 tablespoons white Karo corn syrup
2/3 cup whole milk
1 stick butter
1/3 teaspoon baking soda

1 pound whole pecan halves
1 teaspoon vanilla

Mix all ingredients EXCEPT pecans and vanilla in a heavy saucepan; bring to a soft boil.
Stir in pecans and vanilla; return to a soft boil.
Remove from heat and beat mixture till creamy.
Drop by whole teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper (should be small, fat dollops for best results).
Let cool and harden.

Wrap individually in saran wrap for gifting.

Yeild: around 3 dozen prailines.

... Because these amazing things, from my grandmother's recipe box, can do more for unity and charity in the Body of Christ than you could ever imagine... perhaps give them to anyone who persecutes you or despitefully uses you... or put them to good use for Christmas time evangelism...

(NB that you need TEXAN pecans for best results)
