NO BAKE COCONUT PECAN PRALINE COOKIES

Ingredients

    • 2 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
    • 1/2 cup corn syrup
    • 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 2 1/2 cups chopped pecans
    • 2 cups sweetened shredded coconut

Instructions

  1. In a medium sized bowl, combine coconut and pecans; set aside.
  2. In a heavy saucepan over medium high heat, stir sugar, evaporated milk, corn syrup and butter. Cook and stir until mixture comes to a full rolling boil — let boil and stir for 3 minutes.
  3. Remove pan from heat and stir in vanilla and coconut and pecan mixture. Stir off the heat for about 4 minutes, until mixture starts to cool and thicken.
  4. Drop by large spoonfuls on wax paper. Let harden completely — about an hour to an hour and a half — before serving.

Notes
