Sugar Glazed Walnuts

Comment on this recipe

This is super good. They make great gifts. You can't eat just one. If you are going to make a lot, you can double the batch.

Ingredients

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups walnut halves

Instructions

Combine and cook sugar, water, salt and cinnamon to soft ball stage (236 degrees) without stirring. Remove from heat. Add vanilla and walnuts. Stir gently until the nuts are coated and mixture becomes creamy. Turn onto wax paper. Separate halves from each other as they cool. Separate them as soon as possible so they don't stick to the wax paper.
