Spiced Divinity



  1. Combine sugar, corn syrup and water. Bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Clip a candy thermometer to the side of the saucepan. Cook to 252 degrees F (hard-ball stage), washing down sides of saucepan to prevent crystals forming.
  2. Add cream of tartar to egg whites; beat until stiff.
  3. Pour the hot syrup in a thin stream over egg whites, beating vigorously. Continue beating until the mixture just begins to thicken, then add mace, allspice and vanilla extract. Continue beating until it begins to hold its shape and loses its high gloss.
  4. Stir in nuts.
  5. Drop quickly from tip of spoon in individual pieces onto wax paper, or spread in a buttered pan and cut into squares when firm.

Makes 3 to 4 dozen pieces, depending on size.
