1 cup Priester's natural pecan halves, toasted
5 tablespoon unsalted butter, divided
6 tablespoon light cream
1/3 cup sweetener blend (see recipe below)
Combine 4 tablespoons of the butter with the sweetener and cream over medium heat. Stir until sweetener is dissolved. Add the vanilla. Cook until it is a deep golden brown. As soon as it reaches that deep color (right before burning) remove the heat and immediately add the other 1 tablespoon butter. Stir until smooth. Add the salt and toasted pecans. Drop by spoonfuls onto wax paper. Refrigerate until firm.
