This was given to me by one of the senior citizens I worked with about 20 years ago. I know she would be pleased I am posting it. I'll bet she is smiling down from above.

These are so simple. The sugar browns as it cooks, so there is no need for butterscotch or brown sugar. They remain soft and not sticky.

I have a photo of the finished product, but can't figure out how to upload on my IPad. My laptop has crashed.
