Here’s a popular blast from the past recipe for a butterscotch yule log. The directions are typed below the photo in case you can’t read them.
- 1 6-oz package (1 cup) Nestles Butterscotch morsels
- 1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- 1/3 cup chopped pecans
- Slightly beaten egg white
- Pecan halves
Melt butterscotch morsels over hot (not boiling) water. Remove from water. Stir in condensed milk and vanilla. Add chopped pecans; mix well. Chill till firm enough to handle. Form into 12-inch roll on waxed paper. Roll tightly in waxed paper to shape evenly. Unroll and mark surface lengthwise with tines of fork; brush with egg white. Press pecan halves into roll to completely cover surface. Wrap in waxed paper. Chill. Cut in ½-inch slices with sharp knife. Makes about 2 dozen.
