BackstoryA woman I work with brings this in to share with us. Her mom has made this for years. She thinks she got it from the back of a box years ago. This makes a great bake sale item or a food gift, wrapped in plastic wrap with a bow to give to friends and co-workers.
- 1c. Blanched Slivered Almonds; 1/2c. oleo/margarine--- recomended---regular Blue Bonnet; 1T. light corn syrup; 1/2c sugar; Also, recomended- heavy bottomed skillet. 8 or 9" round pie pan, greased with some butter or oleo.
- grease generously with butter or margerine the round pie pan and set aside. Combine in the heavy bottomed skillet, almonds, blue bonnet, sugar and corn syrup. Bring to a boil stirring constantly until the mixture turns a nice golden brown color. this takes about 5 to 6 minutes.. Working quickly, spread the mixture into the round greased pie pan. cool till firm. This can then be presented as a round disk that you can cover with plastic wrap and tie a bow on it and give for a bake sale, or as a special gift to someone special. Or break it up and and eat it.
