Coconut Penuche Patties

1 1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 c. light brown sugar
3 Tbsp. light corn syrup
1 c. light cream
1 c. finely grated coconut
1 tsp. vanilla
4 Tbsp. butter
about 18 pecans

In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and cream. Bring mixture to a boil over low heat, stirring constantly. Continue to boil gently, without stirring until a small amount of mixture forms a soft ball in cold water, 234 degrees.
Remove from heat. Add coconut, vanilla and butter. Do not stir. Cool mixture until lukewarm without stirring. Then stir to blend. Quickly drop by heaping teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Press pecan halves on each patty and let stand until firm, about 3 hours. Wrap patties in wax paper to store them.
