Grammie's Sour Cream Fudge

I don't think of Grammie making candy. It seems out of character. But, here it is in her own hand. In my memory, if Grammie wanted something sweet, she whipped up a batch of her loaf pan Anise Biscotti. True Biscotti...the ones we are used to, are usually in such a stiff batter that they are formed into a log before baking. Leave it to Grammie to be different. I suppose that over a lifetime though, she must have had occasion to do all sorts of things like this. This seems a very strange recipe with flour and sour cream in it. But, it must work or she would not have bothered to save it. I can't wait for my diet to end so I can work my way through all these sweets.

Grammie's Sour Cream Fudge

3 cups light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
1 rounded tablespoon flour
1 cup thick sour cream

Stir the mixture till it is dissolved.
Boil it till it forms a soft ball when dropped in cold water.
Remove the pan from the fire.


1 teaspoon of vanilla
a piece of butter half the size of an egg
1 cup walnut meats cut fine

Beat till the mixture begins to grow smooth and thick.
Then, turn the mixture out into buttered pans.
When cool, cut into small squares.
