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
- In a large pot, melt the butter.
- Add the milk and the condensed milk and stir.
- Add the sugar and bring to a boil (while stirring) until a candy thermometer reads 260. It will foam and start turning golden.
- Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and walnuts.
- With the spoon (I use a wooden spoon) beat for at least a couple of minutes, until it begins to thicken and cool.
- Pour into a buttered 4 x 10 loaf pan.
- Sprinkle the top with more walnuts and press into the candy.
- Cool and cut into squares.
