I had homemade Almond Toffee (http://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/almond-toffee-10000000600579/) that was a bit too stick-to-your-teeth for my taste, so crushed the appropriate amount in the food processor for the toffee, and then doubled the recipe. They came out a bit too soft, difficult to get them off the cookie sheet without rolling up, except for one cookie sheet full (out of 4 cookie sheets, 3 of them using silicone liners, one sprayed with oil.). The good sheet was one of the silicone liner batches, and I have no idea why that bunch were beautiful and came off the sheet easy, holding their shape. All tasted good, but I'm trying to think of some creative use for the not-so-pretty rolled up ones.
