Light-brown sugar, 3 cups, Milk, 1 cup, Butter, 1 teaspoon, Vanilla extract, 1 teaspoon, Nut-meats, 1 cup.

Any of the various nut-meats may be used. Put the sugar and milk over the fire, and boil till a sample dropped into cold water makes a soft, but firm ball in the fingers.

Then add the butter. Take from the fire, flavor with the vanilla, stir in the nut-meats which have been broken in little bits, turn out onto a shallow pan, well buttered, and mark into squares with a buttered knife.
