Best Scottish Butterscotch Recipe

Best Scottish Butterscotch Recipe. Real butterscotch is a Scottish treat, made from the simplest ingredients, but has no equal for rich, smooth flavour.

Makes about one pound.
One pound of Light Brown sugar.
A quarter pint of Water.
Two ounces of Unsalted butter.

1.Put the sugar and water in a large heavy-based saucepan, with a sugar thermometer attached, and heat gently until dissolved. 2.Bring to the boil, then boil until the temperature reaches the soft crack stage 270 °F, when a little of the syrup dropped into cold water separates into hard but not brittle threads. Brush down the sides of the pan occasionally with a pastry brush dipped in cold water. 3.Add the butter a little at a time, stirring until dissolved before adding any more. Pour into a greased 7 inch square tin. Mark into squares when almost set. When set, break along the marked lines. Store in an airtight container. Best Scottish Cooking.
