Ingredients:  
2 egg whites, at room temperature
2-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup pecans, chopped

Directions:
Directions:
Beat egg whites until stiff, set aside. Make a syrup of the sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt in a saucepan. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil. Cook this mixture without stirring to a hard ball stage (260 on a candy thermometer). Slowly and carefully pour the syrup into the egg whites in a thin stream, while the beaters are running on high. While still beating, add vanilla. Keep beating until mixture is very stiff and loses some of its shine and holds its shape, 3-4 minutes. Stir in pecans.

Quickly drop by teaspoonfuls onto a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper. (Work quickly before it hardens!) Let dry, then put into a plastic container.
