Ingredients

  • 5 to 6 cups confectioners' sugar

  • 2 cups sugar

  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 1 to 2 teaspoons anise, lemon or orange extract

  • Red, yellow or orange liquid food coloring, optional

Directions

Fill a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. pan with confectioners' sugar to a depth of 1/2 in. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, make a continuous curved-line indentation in the sugar; set pan aside. In a large heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cover and continue cooking for 3 minutes to dissolve any sugar crystals. Uncover and cook on medium-high heat, without stirring, until a candy thermometer reads 300° (hard-crack stage). Remove from the heat; stir in extract and food coloring if desired. Carefully pour into a glass measuring cup. Working quickly, pour into prepared indentation in pan. Cover candy with confectioners' sugar. When candy is cool enough to handle, cut into pieces with a scissors. Store in a covered container. Yield: 3/4 pound.
