I am so sorry. I really am. I just couldn’t help it. This is my Dad’s recipe. He loved to make Divinity, but he couldn’t write worth a crap. But, I couldn’t post the recipe without showing you that it was his, in his writing. I know you probably can’t read it…and I just hope I can interpret it all (cause I really can’t read it either). I do treasure it though…cause I will never have anymore of his recipes other than what I have.
I treasure all of the recipes I have from people that are in their handwriting, no matter how hard they are to read. If you love to cook…I highly recommend that you ask your loved ones to write down some of your favorites, in their handwriting, and save them. You will treasure them one day.
2 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup light syrup
1/4 tsp salt
Bring to a boil till it will form a hard ball when dropped in cold water
Beat 2 egg whites till stiff
Slowly beat the mixture into the egg whites. Add 1 tsp vanilla. Spoon onto waxed paper and place a pecan on top.
Every time I use this recipe I think of my Dad and all the time he spent in the kitchen. I hope that if you make this delightful candy it will put a smile on your face as well. Enjoy!Print This Post
