      Tasty! I'm a dope and I thought "spins small thread" meant the sugar would make a thread right as it dripped off the spoon . I didn't realize it referred to dripping the sugar into cold water, so I way overcooked it. But it still turned out very tasty. I made it for a salad, but we are already snacking on it.

      Very easy to make. 3 stars for lack of clarity in the directions> I am glad I saw another review that mentions the sugar string test needs to be done in water. I did not add cinnamon but salted the sugared walnuts as they were cooling. Added to a salad.

      Excellent and very easy to make. I made as directed except I cooked my sugar mixture about 6 to 7 minutes. Plan to add them to a spring mix salad with apples, blue cheese and white balsamic vinegarette. Update: Before I added these to our salad I decided to toast them at 250 degrees for about 40 minutes, turning them 3-4 times and they were even better. There were suggestions from our guest to cut back on the cinnamon a little bit and the vanilla. It went so well with our salad.
