Pumpkin Seed Brittle

Thoroughly enjoying my time off from getting ready for craft shows and changing instead to holiday mode. And what’s the first thing we all think of when it comes time to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday? Food of course!

I generally suck as a cook (really I do, ask anyone who’s ever eaten some of my mysterious culinary NON-delights), but once in a while I find that rare recipe that I’m actually good at (usually something in the area of baking that contains some sort of dough). So I recently stumbled upon a recipe for pumpkin-seed brittle. I must say, the stuff is delish! (and easy enough that even I can cook it).

Pumpkin-seed brittle is basically the same thing as its closely named cousin “peanut brittle,” the main difference being that pumpkin-seeds are used instead of peanuts. Well, pumpkin seeds are something we currently have in plenty. Between the pumpkins we’re using for Thanksgiving decor, and the leftover pumpkins that didn’t get sold or carved, we’ve got pumpkin seeds a plenty. So I couldn’t resist giving the recipe a go.

I can’t claim credit for the recipe, that’s someone else’s culinary genius, but here’s the link to Martha’s recipe if you want to try it yourself: http://www.marthastewart.com/340197/pumpkin-seed-brittle

Enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
