Incorporate unique flavor with anise in this Anise Almond Brittle recipe.

• 1/2 cup sliced almonds
• 1 cup sugar
• 1/3 cup water
• Pinch cream of tartar
• 2 tablespoons aniseseeds

1. In a 250-degree oven, toast almonds on an unlined baking sheet until golden and fragrant. Set aside.

2. In a medium pot, combine sugar, water and cream of tartar. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Cover the pot and let boil approximately 5 minutes undisturbed. Remove lid and examine color of the molten sugar. When the mixture turns amber, quickly add almonds and aniseseeds, gently stirring to incorporate.

3. Pour the brittle onto a Silpat or buttered cookie sheet. Spread candy thin with a buttered spatula to achieve glass-like texture.
