Butterscotch Wafers

  • 1 2/3 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup corn syrup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Lemon oil
Put sugar, corn syrup, and water in a saucepan. Stir constantly until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil and boil to 270°F, or until it is brittle when tried in cold water. Add butter and molasses and cook to 280°F, or until it cracks in cold water. Stir to prevent burning. While stirring, move the spoon over every part of the bottom of the kettle. Be careful not to stir in just one spot, thus allowing the candy to burn on the other side of the saucepan. Remove from fire. Add salt. Flavor with lemon oil. Drop from tip of spoon onto an oiled marble slab or tin sheet in wafers the size of a quarter of a dollar.
