Toasting the matzo enhances the flavor and helps it stay crisp. Keep a close eye on the buttercrunch as they bake. Remove them from the oven as soon as they begin to bubble, and spread the sugar mixture evenly over the matzo crackers. This recipe is sticky, so cover your baking sheet with aluminum foil and parchment paper for easy cleanup.
