Just-Right Divinity Recipe

 

 

2
cups granulated sugar
1/2
cup light corn syrup
1/2
cup water
1/8
teaspoon salt
2
egg whites
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
teaspoon powdered sugar

 

 

Mix together in saucepan granulated sugar, corn syrup, water and salt.  Heat slowly, stirring until sugar is dissolved, then boil gently without stirring to soft-ball stage (240°).  Meanwhile, beat egg whites until stiff.  Gradually pour one-third of the syrup over them, beating constantly.  Continue to cook remaining syrup to hard-ball stage (265°).  Beat this syrup gradually into egg mixture, and beat until mixture will just hold its shape.  Beat in vanilla and powdered sugar.  For variety, add 2 or 3 drops red coloring and 2 to 3 drops peppermint flavoring-- nuts also, if you wish.  Drop from teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet or pour into lightly buttered pan. 

 

Makes about one pound.
