1/3
cup sour cream
2
tablespoons butter
1/4
teaspoon salt
2
teaspoons vanilla
1
cup chopped pecans
1/4

  • 1 Grease 8-inch square pan with butter. In 2-quart heavy saucepan, stir together sugar, corn syrup, sour cream, 2 tablespoons butter and the salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cook, stirring occasionally, to 234°F on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into cup of very cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from water; remove from heat. Cool without stirring to 120°F, about 1 hour. (Bottom of saucepan will be lukewarm.)
