Butterscotch Yule Log

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.

Yule Log Recipe

  • 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.
