Almond Butterscotch Delights

  I used to eat these by the panful. Now I use my God-given sense of self-control and eat one at a time. So can you. Make a coffee and nibble the edges slowly…make it last! A Weight Watchers member enjoys every bit of their food and plans wisely…….

Makes 48 servings

12 large graham crackers about 5″by 2 1/2″

 1/2 pound butter

1 cup brown sugar lightly packed

1 cup almonds ,slivered

Line a cookie sheet (which has edges!) with parchment paper. Break the crackers along score lines. Each large cracker should make 4 smalller ones. Place crackers on cookie sheet.

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add brown sugar. Let boil for 2 minutes. Spread this mixture over the crackers. Sprinkle almonds (or other nuts) over top. If you don’t care about the calories…and at this point why would you…add a few chocolate chips.

Bake at 350F for 7 minutes. Let cool. Break apart and store in cookie tins. It is wise to separate layers with parchment paper.
