  • 1/2 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold water

Directions:

Generously grease a large cookie sheet and wooden spoon with butter. In a large saucepan, heat the corn syrup, sugar, and water to boiling, stirring frequently. Constantly stir and let boil 10 to 15 minutes, until mixture reaches 230 - 234 degrees F on candy thermometer, and forms a long thread when spoon is lifted and held above pan. Stir in nuts and cook 10 - 15 minutes longer, until nuts turn golden brown and mixture reaches 300 degrees.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the vanilla and baking soda and mix until soda is dissolved. Remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in the vanilla mixture and butter. Quickly pour out onto cookie sheet and smooth the top with the back of the buttered spoon to fill the pan. Cool about 20 minutes, then break into 1 inch pieces.

Our local newspaper runs really good recipes. This issue has cookies that sound so good. The readership is small, and these recipes should be shared.
