Directions:
Stir together in heavy 3-qt. saucepan sugar, corn syrup and salt. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until temperature reaches 245 on candy thermometer or until a small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a firm ball which does not flatten on removal from water. Add gradually, so that mixture does not stop boiling, butter, milk and pecans. Continue cooking, stirring frequently, until temperature returns to 245. Remove from heat. Add vanilla. Let stand until mixture stops bubbling. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Let stand until set. Wrap individually in wax paper. Store in tight container.

Personal Notes:
Sara Zook is Aunt Waneta's daughter-in-law. One winter when our children were young we spent a week with Don, Sara, Mike and Greg in Houston. We had a wonderful visit! Sara had this candy made and stored, and we thought it was delicious.
