Almond Brittle Cookies

Almond Brittle Cookies

1 box graham crackers
Break into 4 pieces. I use a light sawing motion with a serrated knife to cut the crackers along the lines. You will not use the whole box of crackers. Line up crackers as close as possible on cookie sheet lined with aluminum foil. Sprinkle ½ of 6 oz. package of sliced almonds on top of crackers. Heat oven to 350˚.

Sauce: Melt 2 cubes butter
½ cup sugar
Simmer until bubbly, foaming and frothy. Pour over crackers and almonds with a soup ladle, so the almonds do not move around.

Bake 15-20 minutes. Do not over bake.
Take out. A few minutes later break apart along cracker lines while still warm and then cool. Don’t wait too long or it may be difficult to break apart crackers.

NOTE: I use a 12x18 size cookie sheet lined with heavy-duty foil. This makes clean up so much easier.

review: These make great gifts for neighbors or loved ones. I loved the texture of these, be ware these are addictive!
