I thought I would share with you one of our favorite recipes from when we learned about Native American Indians. It is very easy to make and a favorite with children. Warning: It is addictive!
1 lb. of Powdered Sugar
1/3 Cup Margarine
1/3 cup Pancake Syrup (pure Canadian Maple Syrup would also taste great)
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
halved pecans (optional)
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl and work with your hands or a large spoon until smooth and creamy. It will be very sticky. Roll into teaspoon or tablespoon sized balls and barely flatten tops to add a slice of halved pecans.
Tip: Put it in the freezer to quicken the hardening process. It won't get very hard, just firm enough that it stays in a cream-candy consistency so you can handle it without sticky fingers. It tastes good cold (but not frozen!).
