If a recipe says "untested"...

We want to post scans of all the original recipes so everyone in our family can enjoy them even if we haven't gotten around to testing each one in our modern kitchen. As we test each recipe, we will add our notes and photos to the recipes we do test and remove the note "untested" in the title. If you make one of the untested recipes, take a photo of the finished product and send us a note to let us know of your experience so we may include those in the recipes as well.

Penoche (untested)

This undated recipe appears to be Grammy's handwriting (her handwriting looked different in fountain pen when she was younger). I suspect that this recipe pre-dates 1941 (the year she got married).

  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup nuts
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

  1. Cook syrup to 236°F for soft ball [I think the brown sugar and milk make up the syrup]
  2. Remove from fire and add butter without stirring
  3. When lukewarm, beat until creamy
  4. Stir in nuts [although not noted, I suspect this is also when you would stir in the vanilla]
  5. Pour into pans
  6. Cut in squares

Pin It!
