  1. In 2-quart heavy saucepan sweetened condensed milk, sugar, salt, and lemon juice to a boil over medium heat. Continue to boil until it reaches 236 degrees F (soft-ball stage; about 20-30 minutes).
  2. Remove from heat, add butter and white chocolate (or white chips). Do not stir; let sit undisturbed until the pan can be handled (about 110 degrees F).
  3. Stir until thick, fold in vanilla and pistachios.
  4. Spread into a buttered 8-inch square pan.
  5. Cool.
  6. Cut into 1-inch squares.

A 10- to 12-ounce package white (vanilla) chips can be substituted for 10- to 12-ounces of white chocolate.

White chips bake well and are about 1/3 the price of white chocolate.

Go wild and use the red or green pistachios.

You can also add 1/2 cup of candied cherries to add color and flavor.
