Pulled Butter Mints

  • 4 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 4 tsp. corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp. peppermint extract

Melt butter in a saucepan.

Add sugar, water, corn syrup and cream of tartar.

Cook to hard ball stage (at which a few drops form a brittle ball in cold water), and add peppermint.

Pour into a buttered pan.

When cool enough to handle, butter the hands to prevent sticking and pull the candy until it is white and creamy.

Cut into small pieces with scissors.

Wrap in waxed paper.

Yield: 1 pound.
