Sugar, 3 cups, Milk, 1 1/2 cups, Butter, 1 large tablespoon, Vanilla, 1 teaspoon, Nut-meats, 1 cup.

Break the nut-meats in bits. Boil the sugar and milk together, slowly until perfect drops will form when dropped in cold water.

Then remove from the fire, add the butter and vanilla. Heat again till thick, then add the nut-meats, mix well, and turn into buttered plates and mark in squares with a knife, while still warm.
