Author Notes: My mother was quite a candy maker. This is another recipe that she made about once a year. I changed a few little details (like amounts of ingredients) . I wish that my mother was still around to guide me through some of her methods! I researched this recipe (because of the strange name) and found that it is a Scottish candy. I made some to give as gifts. It is very rich so a tiny piece is satisfying.dymnyno

Makes about 1 1/2 lbs

  • 4 oz chilled butter, cut into pieces
  • 7 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 6 oz whole milk
  • 2 c sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  1. In a large pot, melt the butter.
  2. Add the milk and the condensed milk and stir.
  3. Add the sugar and bring to a boil (while stirring) until a candy thermometer reads 260. It will foam and start turning golden.
  4. Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and walnuts.
  5. With the spoon (I use a wooden spoon) beat for at least a couple of minutes, until it begins to thicken and cool.
  6. Pour into a buttered 4 x 10 loaf pan.
  7. Sprinkle the top with more walnuts and press into the candy.
  8. Cool and cut into squares.

These are just wonderful. It made wonderful gifts and I sent a box to Virginia , they arrived beautifully. I added a little cinnamon in the batch for health purposes ;) I will be making these for my Christmas box.
