Farmerville First Baptist Church Sesquicentennial Cookbook 1847-1997

  • 3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 3/4 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 (3 oz) strawberry gelatin
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped

Combine first 4 ingredients in a heavy 3 quart saucepan; cook over low heat, stirring gently, until sugar dissolves. Cover and cook over medium heat 2 to 3 minutes to wash down crystals from sides of pan. Uncover and cook over medium heat, without stirring, to hard-ball stage (258 degrees). Remove from heat. Beat egg whites in a large bowl at high speed of an electric mixer until foamy. Add gelatin, and beat until stiff peaks form. Pour hot syrup mixture in a thin steam over egg whites while beating constantly at high speed until mixture holds its shape (3 to 4 minutes). Quickly stir in pecans and drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls onto wax paper. Let cool.

Yeilds: 4 1/2 dozen. Make, eat, and enjoy!
