1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup cream
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup pecans


Dissolve sugars in cream and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Add the butter and pecans and cook until the syrup reaches the soft ball stage, 238 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Cool without disturbing, then beat mixture until somewhat thickened but not until it loses its gloss.

Drop by tablespoons onto a well-greased flat surface or on a waxed paper-lined surface. The candy will flatten into large cakes.
