    Default TWG Cracker-Jack Recipe?

    Hi all!

    For many years, I've used the old Cracker Jack recipe from Amy Dacyczyn's original Tightwad Gazette zine... I know the recipe made it into the book too... OK, but now I'm married, moved, & I've lost both versions. I do remember that content from the zine was submitted by subscribers and she just coallated it... Don't think there'd be any copywrite issues if someone were to post it here.

    It being superbowl sunday, I know my DH would enjoy it... Found a previous thread id: 30599... but don't know if this is the same recipe or not...

    Does anyone know? It was a great recipe. I'd hate to have lost it forever.

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    1 c Peanuts
    3/4 c Brown Sugar
    1/4 c Butter
    3 T Corn Syrup
    1/4 tsp Salt
    1/4 tsp Baking Soda
    1/4 tsp Vanilla

    Bake at 300 for 15 min.
