remaining syrup back to cook to 265 deg.F. (hard ball stage) Gradually beat this
syrup  into egg whites: Add vanilla and continue beating until mixture will hold
its shape. ( If weather is damp and candy refuses to hold its shape,beat in one
teaspoon of powdered sugar at this stage.)  Add walnuts. Drop from teaspoon onto
waxed paper; or pour into a buttered 9-inch square pan and cut into squares when
cool.  Makes about `1 1/2 pounds of candy.
