Old Fashion Pecan Praline Sauce

So, I LOVE ice-cream… and what’s ice-cream without a YUMMY topping!  Well, here’s one that you’ve gotta try (perfect for gifts on a budget too, now that Christmas is coming)  Even if you don't like pecans, the creamy(ness) of this sauce will make your ice-cream SO much better!!   Great topping for apples, bread pudding, cakes and muffins as well!!
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 1/4 cups chopped pecans
7 tablespoons of butter (divided)
1 1/2 cups of brown sugar
3 tablespoons of flour
3/4 cup light of corn syrup
2/3 cup of evaporated milk (heaven)
Place chopped pecans in a microwave dish with 3 Tablespoons butter. Cook for 8 - 10 minutes, stirring twice. Watch the pecans closely to not burn them.
In another microwave safe bowl (I use a glass batter bowl because it has a lip for pouring) place remaining butter and heat until melted.  Whisk in brown sugar, flour, and light corn syrup until blended.  Cook on high 6-8 minutes, stirring twice, until the sugar is dissolved.
Add in 2/3 cup of evaporated milk and the pecans, stir well.
Pour into jars. Keep sauce refrigerated and to reheat slightly in microwave to pour over ice cream.
Add a tag and you’ve got some sweet little gifts! Consider packaging with a cool ice cream scoop to make it extra special.

Yields: 3 cups of sauce
