These are nice for snacking. They also appear in tomorrow's Holiday Luncheon Salad.
2 tbl. butter
¾ cup almonds
3 tbl. sugar
Melt the butter in a pan and add the almonds. Stir constantly over medium heat for a couple of minutes, then add the sugar. Continue stirring constantly over low heat for about 15 minutes, until the sugar turns a nice caramel color. Spread the nuts out on a sheet of waxed paper to cool. Sprinkle lightly with salt.
