Purple Kitchen Treats

Over the past few years, I have been working on a cookbook. During this time, I took time off to finish my Master's Degree. Now that I have accomplished that, I am working again on my cookbook, slowly but surely.

However, over the past few months, something interesting has happened...I have received multiple requests for baked goods, particularly my cookies. I am also receiving multiple requests for granola. So, with all these requests in mind, I have started to make my cookies for sale, along with my granola.

My official web site is available, but will be undergoing a significant redesign. Be sure to visit my "official" web site at: http://www.susanshonk.com and watch for some exciting changes.

From the heart of my purple kitchen to you,

365 in 365 - #87 - Ruthie's 50 Cent Fudge

This is another recipe that is still in my mother's original handwriting.  My mom had a very old recipe for fudge that used butterscotch pudding mix.  When I was growing up, she made this constantly because she could not keep the container full.  This was my dad's and brother's favorite candy.

This recipe calls for margarine.  Do not substitute butter, for some reason, butter does not work in this recipe.

2 packages of butterscotch pudding mix, the kind that has to be cooked.
1/2 cup milk
1 stick margarine, at room temperature
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla

1 pound of confectioners sugar
1/2 cup of chopped walnuts

Grease an 8 x 8 inch pan

Mix the butter, milk and salt together and heat until the butter melts.
Whisk in the pudding mix and cook for 1- 3 minutes stirring constantly
Add the vanilla and the confectioners sugar and stir until combined.
Pour into the prepared pan, even out the mixture and chill

Cut into 1" squares and enjoy!!

Have a great evening!!!
