1/2 c
water, cold
1 tsp
1/2 tsp
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract


1Place nuts on a cookie sheet and heat in a 350 degree oven for 10 min. stirring once. In the meantime, butter the sides of a 2 qt. heavy bottom sauce pan. Add sugar, cinnamon, salt and water. Over medium heat, stir until sugar dissolves and mixture comes to a boil. Cook without stirring to soft ball stage (236 degrees on candy thermometer)
