Christmas Treat #1: Pecan Brittle

This week on the blog we have a special treat!  I'll be doing daily blog posts with a different cookie or candy that I've made for Christmas every day.  With any luck, I'll keep baking and have to go beyond Christmas Day with this plan!

Those of you that are familiar with my Christmas baking, know that I almost always make peanut brittle.  The recipe is from my Mom and we love it.  But, this year I am having trouble finding raw peanuts, so I thought well, I've seen brittle with other nuts... and I have pecans...  I haven't given up on finding raw peanuts, but this will hold us over until I do.

I did a google search and picked a recipe from the Savour Fare blog.  It is different than my peanut brittle recipe.  Two main differences are no butter and 1 Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.  I know!  I ready that and thought really? But, the candy is really good and easy.  You can click here to go to the Savour Fare blog and find the recipe.  It takes a candy thermometer, but there isn't any reason to be afraid of a candy thermometer.
