BUTTERSCOTCH PARFAIT

Put in small saucepan 1 1/4 cups brown sugar 2 tablespoons butter and 1 1/2 cup water; stir until sugar is melted and boil without stirring to 238 degrees F. or until syrup forms a soft ball when tried in cold water. Pour slowly onto 3 egg yolks well beaten, and beat until cold and thick. (This mixture may be made the day before and kept in a cool place, if desired.) Fold in 3 egg whites beaten stiff 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 1/2 cups heavy cream beaten stiff and 1/2 cup nut meats broken in pieces. Put in paper cases, sprinkle with nuts and place in can of ice cream freezer with waxed paper and cardboard between the layers. Surround can with ice and salt, allowing 2 quarts ice mixed with 1 quart salt, using more ice and salt mixture, if necessary. Leave 4 hours or until frozen. Mixture may be frozen in small baking powder boxes or ice cream molds instead of in the paper cases.
