Old Candy Recipe - 1948

Famous Pulled Cream Candy
2 lb. granulated sugar
small 1/2 tsp. of cream of tartar
2/3 C. water

Combine sugar, cream of tartar, and water. Boil without stirring until forms a ball in cold water. Pour into buttered pan to cool. Turn into center once or twice while cooling. When comfortable to handle, pull flavor and cut with scissors.

I will be joining King's Court IV, Turning the Clock Back, and We are that Family for their swaps today. Be sure to come back tomorrow for more old recipes!


  1. Sounds Easy and FUN!!

  2. I love old recipes! this one seems kind of confusing to me, but still fun :)

  3. Wow, I haven't heard of an old-fashioned taffy pull since I was a kid, and even then we didn't do them. (I'm 54). But my mom, who's 87, used to talk about them. Fun, but time-consuming. I bet kids would have a ball with something like this.

  4. This sounds like a great idea for a family night. You'd have a lot of fun making it and then you get to eat it.
