Microwave Pecan Brittle

Special thanks to: GC, Odessa, TX Servings: 20 Directions: 1 1/2 cups SURRATT FARMS pecan halves or pieces 1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup light corn syrup 1 tsp. butter or margarine 1 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp baking soda 1/8 tsp salt Mix the pecans, sugar, corn syrup & salt together in a microwave-safe casserole dish until well mixed. NOTE: If you have a high-power microwave, add your pecans after cooking the mixture for four minutes, otherwise, your pecans will be too brown. Cook in microwave on high for 4 minutes; stir well, then cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in vanilla & butter. Microwave on high for 2 minutes. Add baking soda & stir gently & quickly. Immediately pour into a lightly buttered jelly roll pan, spreading out thinly. Allow mix to cool, then break into small pieces & store in an airtight container. Special Notes: Hint: Warm the jelly roll pan in a 250 deg. oven to make spreading the candy thinner more easily. My microwave is a 1100 watt one; adjustments may have to be made for lower wattage ones
