1 cup shelled raw peanuts
2 tbsp. butter or margarine, softened

heat, heat to boiling sugar, corn syrup, salt and water, stirring
until sugar is dissolved. Stir in peanuts. Set candy thermometer in
place and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until temperature
reaches 300 degrees F. or until a small amount of mixture dropped into

Remove from heat; immediately stir in butter or margarine and baking
soda; pour at once onto cookie sheet.

With 2 forks, lift and pull peanut mixture into rectangle about 14" by
