Damsel in dis Dress

I've played with Barb's toffee recipe so much, the only original
ingredients left intact are the butter and the brown sugar. After
three batches with chocolate, I decided I don't care for the
chocolate. Here's what I came up with.

Almond Toffee

Serving Size : 16 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : candies

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Butter the bottom of an 8-inch square pan. Sprinkle with sliced
almonds (the broken pieces work well here).

Combine butter and brown sugar in a small, heavy saucepan and cook at
a medium boil for 7 minutes, stirring constantly. At the last moment,
quickly add almond extract. Immediately pour toffee over nuts,
spreading if necessary. Sprinkle almond slices (the nice ones) over
the hot toffee. Cool and break into pieces. If the toffee remains
soft, cut into 16 squares.
