I was looking for a buttery brittle like I had purchased at a craft fair. This is sooooo good. I made it exactly as written (except for using parchment paper instead of wax paper to line the cookie sheet - it works great). I only had slivered almonds, I think it would be even better with whole almonds, and I think I will try it with cashews and macadamias too! It is fairly greasy on your hands, but that doesn't bother me. The directions are good (I didn't time the minutes, just stirred constantly until it was a good color. Be prepared - once it is done you must pour it out immediately. It cools and hardens very quickly (less than 30 minutes on a cold November afternoon in New York). The biggest plus is not having to deal with massive amounts of corn syrup and candy thermometers!
