Aunt Rose's Fantastic Butter Toffee

 Aunt Rose's Fantastic Butter Toffee
I don't live in the country, but I love everything about it—especially good old-fashioned home cooking! Every year, you'll find me at our County Fair, entering a different recipe contest. I find new recipes everywhere—especially in my large cookbook collection. This toffee, however, comes from the "heart". It's been a favorite in my family since I was a little girl!
