Holiday Baking: Brittle Cookies
40 saltine crackers
1 cup butter (no substitutes)
1 cup brown sugar
12 oz semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Preheat over to 350. Line a 11x16 baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange crackers in one layer. Heat butter and sugar in small saucepan over medium high heat until bubbly. Stir frequently until you've formed a carmel sauce - takes about 3 minutes. Pour over the crackers. Bake at 350 for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and straighten crackers with fork. Sprink with chocolate chips and allow to melt. Spread with a butter knife until smooth then top with nuts. Place in refrigerator to cool then cut into squares. Store in refrigerator.
