2.5 cups sugar

1/2 cup light colored corn syrup

2 egg whites

1 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup halved pecans

Directions:
Directions:
- In heavy 2 quart saucepan combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/2 cup water. Cook and stir over medium-high heat until mixture boils. Clip candy thermometer to the side of the pan and reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking, without stirring, until the thermometer reaches 260 degrees (hard-ball stage).
-Remove pan from heat. IN a large mixing bowl beat egg whites with a free-standing electric mixer on medium speed until stiff peaks form (tips stand straight). Gradually pour hot mixture in a thin stream over the whites, beating on high speed about 3 minutes. Scrape sides of bowl occasionally. Add vanilla and continue beating on high just until candy starts to lose its gloss (5-6 minutes). When beaters are lifted, mixture should fall in a ribbon that mounds on itself.
-Drop a spoonful of candy mixture on waxed paper. If it stays mounded, the mixture has been beaten sufficiently. If mixture flattens, beat 1/2-1 minutes more; check again. QUICKLY drop remaining mixture onto waxed paper because candy hardens FAST. Immediately add pecans to tops of some of the candy. Store tightly covered, makes about 40 pieces.
