Scottish Toffee, Revisited

Pin It

For almost thirty years, I have been making batch upon batch of my Scottish toffee this time of year. So many folks have asked me for the recipe that I am adding the link to last year’s post for the recipe.

I recently remembered that I had originally made this every Christmas using salted butter, and decided that the salt in the butter added the taste missing in recent years. The recipe has been updated to reflect the change.

    I made this last week and it’s “hiding” in the freezer! I am relieved to know that you didn’t tamper with perfection.

    Wow, Liz! This looks so good. I wish I had a tin now. Will definitely add this to the list of goodies to try over the next week or two.

    I managed to snare two bites of this toffee when you brought it to my party.Good thing I did too because the toffee never made it to the buffet. It all got eaten somewhere between the kitchen and the dining room. It is world class. GREG
