Supper Club: Divinity

Thankfully, the second recipe that I tried from this old cookbook was great! I figure the fact that one of my family members wrote “very good” in the margin was a good sign. I did a little reading online to make sure I knew what to look for with the sugar temperature. These little candies really are divine – they’re sweet and fluffy and different from anything else I’ve tried. The recipe didn’t give an amount for vanilla, so we used 1 teaspoon. I love knowing that I’m making something that my family before me enjoyed eating. I really hope I’ll find some more gems in this cookbook!
