  • Beat egg whites (at room temperature) in a large mixing bowl until stiff peaks form. Add half of hot syrup in a thin, steady stream, beating constantly at high speed of an electric mixer. Cook remaining hot syrup over medium heat, without stirring, until mixture reaches hard ball stage (260°). Gradually pour in a thin, steady stream over egg white mixture, beating constantly at high speed of an electric mixer. Continue beating 5 to 10 minutes or until mixture holds its shape when dropped from a spoon. Stir in walnuts, cherries, and vanilla.

  • Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls onto waxed paper; cool completely. Store in airtight containers in a cool place.
