I finished my Camp Loopy Project Three last weekend! Just thought I should keep you in the loop, since I mentioned often enough that I might be in trouble on it. I will share photos next week, but last night’s Knit Nighters can vouch for me, since I had to show it off to them. How are you doing on your Camp projects? Sunday is the due date!
Loopy Elf Cathy brought in a delicious treat, recently. We have some really good cooks and bakers working here! As soon as I tried one, I knew you all would need the recipe, too. Easy to make and fun to share. The recipe comes from Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen, and you will find a lot of other wonderful recipes on her blog, too!
12 whole graham crackers
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tsp. sea salt
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup pecan pieces (can also use almond slivers or walnut pieces)
1/4 cup English Toffee bits
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet or jelly roll pan with parchment paper or foil, leaving an overhang so that you can lift it from the pan when done. (If you use foil, butter it generously.)
Lay the graham crackers out so they cover the pan, without overlapping.
In a pan, melt the butter, brown sugar and 1/4 tsp. sea salt. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and add in the vanilla, cinnamon and pecan pieces. Stir until combined. Then pour the hot mixture over the crackers, spreading evenly until they are all covered. Sprinkle the toffee bits on top.
Bake for 10 minutes until bubbly. Remove and sprinkle the remaining 1/4 tsp. sea salt on top. Let cool completely and then chill. Use a sharp knife to but into desired shapes. Store chilled.
All of your Fall answers on yesterday’s blog contest got me even more in the mood for the leaves to start changing and the weather to turn cooler! We drew a winner and we’ll be sending this beautiful skein of JulieSpins Merino 370 in Seurat plus a cute felted accessory bag to Mary H in Colorado. We’ll get this in the mail today, Mary!
