Buttercream Fondant
2 ½ c. sugar 2 Tbsp. butter 1 c. milk 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar Combine ingredients in a heavy 3-quart saucepan. Cook on medium heat, stirring untilsugar is completely dissolved. It will foam up as it heats. Wash down sides of pan with wet pastry brush. Continue cooking without stirring, washing down sides of pan twice more. Cook to 236 degrees Fahrenheit; remove from heat immediately. Cooking takes about 15 minutes.Pour onto clean marble slab, cookie sheet, or countertop. Let cool to approximately bodytemperate, then work with a scraper or strong spatula, scraping around edges, underneath, andfolding into the center. Continue working until very stiff and can be formed into a firm ball.This takes about 10 minutes. Knead (see below).ALTERNATE METHOD: After cooking, pour into a clean Bosch bowl. Let cool until about body temperature, then beat using the cookie paddles. (Not the wire whisks!) Beat until it firmsup, around 3 minutes, scrape out of bowl onto countertop.Knead on counter or in hands until smooth. Place in an airtight container and let it‘ripen’, or smooth out, overnight. To store for 3-4 months, place in a container, cover with adamp cloth or paper towel, and seal with an airtight lid. Keep refrigerated. Makes about 55centers for dipping, or about 12 3/4-1"x 3-4" logs for pecan logs.

- coarsely chop 3/4- 1 pound of pecans. Either make a batch of caramels, dippingfondant logs in while the caramel mixture is still in the pan, or melt commercial caramel, using itstraight or adding 2 Tbsp. water or milk per pound of caramel. (Any leftover caramel can be poured into a pan lined with buttered foil, chilled and cut into squares, or made into ‘turtles’.)Using a fork or tongs, dip logs in caramel then place on waxed paper covered with the nuts. Liftone side of the waxed paper to roll the log to coat. Chill about an hour to set up. Store and sliceat room temperature.

Fudge can be made in advance, kept airtight in the refrigerator for a month, or wrapped well andfrozen for 2-3 months. When making a batch of traditional fudge if it goes grainy, all is not lost!You can choose any of these: (1) break it up and melt it with 1/4 cup milk, cream, or evaporatedmilk to make a great hot fudge sauce for yourself or the neighbors. (2) break it up with your hands and knead it until it becomes soft and smooth. Press back into the pan. (3)break it up, adda couple tablespoons of water, bring it back up to softball, cool, and beat again. It will be a littlefirmer, but still good.
