Ingredients

1 ½ cups granulated sugar
½ cup sherry
½ t cinnamon
2-3 cups of walnut halves

Preparation

Boil sugar and sherry to 240º on a candy thermometer or until a little mixture in cold water forms a soft ball. Remove from heat. Add cinnamon & walnuts. Stir until nuts are coated. Turn out onto a well-buttered cookie sheet. Make sure you separate them as much as you can.  Let them set up and harden a bit. This should not take too long, 1 hour or so. These are great with a cheese tray after dinner.
