This is a fantastic, quick to prepare snack. You will love the combination of salty/sweet taste and the crunch of the almonds and browned crackers. I got the recipe from my friend after we tasted these snacks at her home. These crackers are really pleasing to the eye and will keep several days in a container with a tightly-fitting lid. They would also make a great Christmas gift in a decorative tin.
- Arrange single layer of Club Crackers on a cookie sheet with sides.
- In saucepan, melt butter, add sugar and boil for two minutes; add the vanilla and stir. Pour immediately over crackers and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
- Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes at 350 degrees or until lightly browned.
- Cool, break apart crackers carefully and arrange on serving platter.48.
Dear, Sweet, Saute Gently - my heroine: Absolutely LOVE this quick, easy, delicious recipe. Totally satisfies my "salty-sweet" yearning. Its only fault: my diabetic hubby can't enjoy. As an added kick I lightly sprinkled coarse-ground kosher salt on top immediately after removing from oven. SO GOOD! (ps: I've lurked on many recipe exchanges for years, but I've never joined, commented or otherwise participated. This ridiculously easy snack compelled me to break my silence.)
Here's another great recipe for me that will enhance my finger food counter the next time I host a group! Unusual & very, very tasty, for sure! As with other we really enjoyed the sweet/salty combo! Thanks for posting your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current round of Pick A Chef] Want to check out PAC? Click here http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=327498
Made for Spring PAC 2010 --Buttery, sweet and yet salty at the same time. Because of Susie D's review, I lined the baking sheet with foil and sprayed it with PAM then proceeded with the recipe. This made it easy to remove the candy from the baking sheet. I toasted the almonds in a frying pan and added chocolate chips to half of the crackers and let them melt on top. These would make a nice addition to a cookie tray. Thx for sharing your recipe.
