Classic almond buttery goodness made with CRACKERS?!!?

Classic almond squares.
 Sometimes we change it up a bit by topping it with chocolate chips after it has baked and smearing them around when they melt, and sometimes we put both chocolate and marshmallows on top after it has baked for a while, then pop it back in the oven to melt a little.

1 cup butter
Graham wafers (or saltines)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup shaved almonds

Cover a greased cookie sheet with one layer of graham wafers breaking some to fit if necessary. Melt butter in a saucepan , stir in sugar and cook on LOW for 5 minutes. Pour over graham wafers and sprinkle with almonds.
Bake at 375 for 7 minutes. Turn off the over and open the door. The wafers tend to float up on the sugar mixture so press them down and rearrange as flat as possible before it cools. Leave in the oven to cool, about 45 minutes. remove and cut into bars.
