Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup pepitas (green hulled pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 tablespoon dried lavender
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Basic Brittle

Directions

  1. Coat a 12-by-17-inch rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray. Bring sugar and corn syrup to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring and brushing down sides with a wet pastry brush to prevent sugar crystals from forming, until sugar dissolves. Cook, swirling occasionally, until mixture just starts to turn golden around edge.

  2. Stir in mix-ins. Cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is pale amber, about 8 minutes. Pour onto baking sheet without spreading. Let cool. Break into pieces.

Cook's Note

Brittle can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.
