DIRECTIONS

  • Combine sugar, cream, and cream of tartar in a 3-qt.
  • heavy saucepan.
  • Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar dissolves.
  • Cook to 236°F.
  • Watch carefully to avoid boiling over.
  • If sugar crystals form on the side of pan, wipe them off.
  • (To prevent this problem, place the lid on just as candies start to boil, for 1 minute. This washes the crystals down automatically.) Pour out onto marble slab (do not scrape pan).
  • Let stand until lukewarm, about 5-10 min.
  • Work like fondant, until creamy& light in color.
  • Add vanilla and work into mix.
  • Shape in pieces as desired.
