Directions:
Cook sugar, corn syrup and water over low heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cook, without stirring to 260 on candy thermometer or until small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water forms a hard ball that holds it's shape but is pliable.

Beat egg whites in medium bowl until stiff peaks form. Continue beating while pouring hot syrup in a thin stream into egg whites, beating constantly on medium speed. (For best results, use stand mixer.) Add vanilla. Beat until mixture holds it's shape and becomes slightly dull. (Mixture may become too stiff for mixer.) Fold in nuts.

Drop mixture from buttered spoon onto waxed paper. Let stand at room temperature at least 12 hours, until candies feel firm. Store in airtight container.
