Almond Brittle

    There is something special about giving handmade and home-baked gifts for the holidays. For me, it's more than the item, but the personal effort - the gift of one's self - that makes it special. If you are on the giving end, here are a couple of recipes sure to please anyone on your baking list.

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 7 Tbsp. butter; softened
  • 1/2 lb. silvered almonds
  • vegetable oil

  • Use a metal spatula when spreading the almond brittle mixture. Spread it quickly,as it hardens very fast.

  • Cut the brittle into pieces before it has hardened completely.

  • Store it in an airtight tin in a cool place; it will keep for several weeks.

  • You can vary the recipe by substituting roasted peanuts, hazelnuts, walmuts, pistachios or cashews for the almonds.

  • Cut the pieces diamond-shaped by cutting diagonally in one direction and straight the other way.

  • Dip one end in melted chocolate for a more elegant look.
