Here's a recipe a friend sent when I wanted to make homemade maple candy. Let me know what you think of it!


  1. Cook the maple syrup, cream, and butter for 9 minutes after the boiling point is reached.
  2. Remove from heat, add the nut meats and extract and stir for 5 minutes.
  3. Pour into buttered pans and when cool, cut into squares.

Just made these, making 1/8 the recipe and using vanilla instead of lemon extract. They're delicious, but gooey. Is that right, or will they /should they harden up? Thanks for posting this...I love the directions in minutes post boiling...great for those of us without candy thermometers!
