Shorecook's Cashew Brittle
Through the years I have always made peanut brittle, but when my hubby could no longer have peanuts, I replaced them with cashews. This is one of my biggest requests at Christmas. It makes a nice thank-you gift as well and is a hit at bake sales.
Recipe Summary test
To make it easier to spread, keep your buttered cookie sheet in a warm oven (heat the oven and turn it off). Also, use a buttered silicone spatula for spreading. You do not have to cover the whole cookie sheet. Tilt the sheet and it will also start to spread.
