2 cups sugar
8 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon rum or vanilla flavoring
1 1/4 cups water
Place all ingredients in a heavy saucepan. Stir over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Without stirring, boil until mixture reaches 290 degrees on a candy thermometer.
Pour into a buttered, 9-by-12-inch pan. Let cool until almost firm to the touch. Mark into 2-inch squares with a sharp knife.
When cool, break into squares or shards. Makes 1 1/4 pounds.
