Lads and Lassies Taffy
From Dorothy

This is an old taffy recipe dating before 1950.   I remember as a child, Mom making this taffy and we had to pull it  until was smooth and taffy colored.  This was a treat. (This recipe for taffy was originally published in "Grandma's Old Fashioned Molasses" by the  American Molasses Company.) 

Lads and Lassies Taffy

1  cup  sorghum molasses
3/4  cup  sugar
1 1/2  tablespoons  butter

Stir over low heat to melt sugar .  Increase heat and cook to form hard ball in cold water (275F).  Pour in buttered pan and cool until firm and cool enough to handle.  With well greased hands, pull taffy until light in color. Let cool and break apart.   Lightly coat with powdered sugar.
