Toasting the matzo enhances the flavor and helps it stay crisp. Keep a close eye on the buttercrunch as they bake. These were in Cooking Light, April 2004. Cooling time is 30 minutes or so.

This was tasty, but next time I will use only 4 matzo crackers. I didn't have quite enough of the brown sugar/butter mixture to cover all of the crackers. We will definitely be making this again, though, probably even soon because we bought a LOT of matzo this year.
