Mix all ingredients, except the vanilla, in a heavy saucepan. Cook over medium heat to soft-ball stage, 236 degrees on a candy thermometer. Stir constantly. Remove from heat. When mixture stops bubbling, stir in the vanilla. Cool slightly, then beat the mixture until it thickens just a bit. Drop candy from a teaspoon onto waxed paper to form patties.
