This is truly a vintage recipe for the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays.
These remind me of Stuckey's Pecan Logs.
Stuckey's was a restaurant along the highways in Michigan.
When we were kids and our family traveled through the State of Michigan ,my father always stopped at a Stuckey's and we bought their Pecan Logs.
1 6 oz. package ( 1 C ) Butterscotch Flavored Morsels
1/3 C Sweetened Condensed Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla
1/2 C Chopped Pecans + Pecan Halves for decorating the log
1 Egg white, beaten with a fork
In a double boiler, melt Butterscotch Morsels over Hot, not boiling water.
Remove and stir in Condensed Milk and Vanilla
Add Chopped Pecans
Chill until firm enough to handle
Form into a 12 " log on waxed paper
Roll tightly in the waxed paper to shape evenly into the log
Unroll and mark the surface lengthwise with the tines of a fork to resemble the bark of a branch.
Brush the log with the Egg White
Press Pecan Halves all over the surface of the roll, cover completely.
Wrap in a new piece of waxed paper and refrigerate until completely chilled
Unwrap and slice in 1/2 " slices with a sharp knife.
Makes about 2 dozen slices.
Peace in the Kitchen!
