1 c, butter
1 c. granulated sugar
1 tbsb light corn syrup
2 c. cashews

Lightly butter a cookie sheet.

In a heavy pan cook and stir the butter, sugar and corn syrup over low heat until the butter is melted and the mixture comes to a boil.

Cook until it starts to turn golden brown (290 degrees F on a candy thermometer) like peanut brittle.

Remove from heat. Quickly stir in cashews.

Pour out onto prepared cookie sheet. Cool completely.

Break up into pieces. Store in airtight container.

Personal Notes:
After buying some Amish Cashew Crunch at the local market I looked until I found this recipe. It's oh so good and much fresher than that at the market.
