Vanilla Marshmallows

3/4 oz. unflavored gelatin 
3 tbsps. vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup cold water for gelatin to dissolve 
1 cup light corn syrup 
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 
1/2 cup water to heat with sugars
Confectioners sugar for dusting

Step 1 - In the bottom of your mixer bowl let the gelatin dissolve into 1/2 cup cool water.
Step 2 - In a saucepan on medium heat with a candy thermometer combine salt, sugar, water and corn syrup until the mixture reaches 240 degrees. Take off of the heat as soon as the temperature is reached. 

Step 3 - Using the whisk attachment on your mixer, fluff the gelatin for a few seconds. Then move to a medium speed add in your vanilla and slowly pour your surgar mixture. Gradually move up to high speed and mix for 4-8 minutes until the mixture is glossy, fluffy and cooled down.  

Step 4 - Line a square dish with parchment paper and generously dust with confectioners sugar. Pour your marshmallow mixture and even out with a spatula. Dust the top with confectioners sugar and let set 2 hours or up to over night. Cut in your desired shapes and toss lightly in confectioners sugar so they don't stick together. Store in a sealed container, although these won't last long in your home! Enjoy!!
