Nutritional Facts

1 serving (2 each) equals 200 calories, 4 g fat (1 g saturated fat), 0 cholesterol, 34 mg sodium, 41 g carbohydrate, trace fiber, 2 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, water and corn syrup; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Cook over medium heat without stirring until a candy thermometer reads 260° (hard-ball stage), about 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  2. In a large bowl, beat egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form. Beat on high and gradually pour hot sugar mixture in a thin stream over egg whites; continue beating for about 3 minutes. Add vanilla; beat just until candy starts to lose its gloss, about 5 minutes. Stir in the pine nuts.
  3. Working quickly, drop by tablespoonfuls onto waxed paper; or pour into a buttered 9-in. square pan and cut into serving size pieces. Store tightly covered. Yield: about 3 dozen.
