Scottish Confectionary-My First Attempt


Just cooked my first batch of Scottish ‘Tablet’ seems to have been a success.

Makes: 35 squares

  • 900g (2 lb) caster sugar
  • 125g (4 1/2 oz) butter
  • 1 tin condensed sweetened milk
  • 150ml (1/4 pt) milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. In a large deep pot place all ingredients except vanilla over medium heat until all melts, stirring frequently. Simmer for 40 minutes stirring now and again.
  2. Bring to boil, add vanilla, remove from the heat stirring all the time; be careful.
  3. Electric whisk for 5 minutes; mixture will thicken.
  4. Spread mixture in a flat tray leave to cool for at least 1 hour. Cut into squares and enjoy.
  • It’s very tasty and cut up into chunks now, but crumbly around the edges. Maybe take it out of the tin a bit more carefully next time…very delicious mind you. Success!
