Peanut Brittle

This is one of my favorite Christmas recipes. It's super easy to make, stores well, and everyone loves it. I got the recipe a few years ago from one of my friends and have made it every Christmas since. I make about 4 batches as it disappears so fast!

Peanut Brittle
1 c. sugar
1/4 c. white corn syrup
1/4 c. water
1 c. raw peanuts
1 T. butter
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. soda

Cook the sugar, corn syrup, and water until boiling, then add the raw peanuts. Continue to cook until caramel colored. Mix together the butter, vanilla and soda. Add to the syrup mixture. Pour onto a buttered and salted cookie sheet. As it cools, spread out with a spatula and flip over, keep spreading thin. When cool, brake into small pieces.
