It is the holiday season, time for celebration and family. Decorating traditions, homemade delights, and heavenly aromas. Here is an old fashioned recipe to get things rolling.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup chopped pecans (can substitute other nuts)
Butter 9″x9″ square pan; set aside. Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, milk, whipping cream, and corn syrup in heavy saucepan. Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Raise heat by slow increments to medium and bring mixture slowly to boil. This is the patience part, do not rush, you do not want mixture to heat too fast and burn on bottom of pan. Continue cooking until candy thermometer reaches 242°F, process may take 25-30 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vanilla and nuts. Pour into prepared pan. Cool completely. Cut with sharp knife into 1½”x1″ pieces (or how you want), wrap in wax paper.
