2 teaspoons vanilla

Combine sugar and sour cream in a heavy 2 1/2 quart saucepan. Cook over low heat sirring constantly until the mixture reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Continue stirring until mixture begins to cool. Add pecans, mixing well. Place small clusters of pecans on waxed paper and cool completely.

These are tried and true. We share the pecan candy with friends and neighbors every year and the sausage cheese balls are from my grandmother Bama.
