Nonstick cooking spray, for the parchment

4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 

2 cups granulated sugar 

2 cups firmly packed dark brown sugar 

1/2 cup whole milk, plus a splash more if needed

1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk

1/4 teaspoon salt 

2 cups whole pecans 


Special equipment:
a candy thermometer
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment; spray the parchment with nonstick spray.
  2. Melt the butter in a Dutch oven, then add the sugars, milks and salt. Place a candy thermometer on the side of the pot, bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat and cook until it reaches soft-ball stage or 235 degrees F, about 10 minutes. Whisk in the pecans and cook, stirring constantly, until creamy and starting to thicken, 3 to 5 minutes; if it gets too thick too fast, add a splash of milk to loosen it up. Drop the pralines 1/4 cup at a time onto the prepared baking sheet. Rest at room temperature to cool, about 5 minutes.
