1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon Cabot Unsalted Butter
½ cup pine nuts
1 pinch ground red pepper (cayenne)
¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
PLACE nonstick baking sheet or baking sheet lined with silicone pad or waxed paper on wire rack next to stovetop.
PLACE clean grease-free sauté pan over medium-high heat for about two minutes or until hot; distribute sugar evenly over bottom of pan. Let sugar melt, shaking pan to redistribute unmelted portion and stirring with spoon as needed. Work carefully, as melted sugar is extremely hot and will burn to the touch.
ADD butter, when sugar is all melted and deep golden brown. Stir in with spoon to incorporate, along with pine nuts, cayenne and salt.
REMOVE from heat and continue stirring until completely blended. Immediately pour out onto baking sheet and spread into even layer with spoon. Let stand until completely cool, about 30 minutes.
BREAK into pieces to serve.
The perfect gift to give during the holidays! Easy to make and super yummy too...thanks Cabot!
