Almond brittle with gingerbread spice

Easiest Christmas candy recipe ever and truly delicious! I made a batch while waiting for my two pound cakes (for some Trifle) to bake.

    Almond brittle with gingerbread spice
    (adated from a recipe that I found in a Swedish newspaper)

    200 ml caster sugar
    25 gram butter
    1 tsp gingerbread spice
    0.5 tsp cardamom
    100 gram peeled shaved almonds

    Put sugar and butter in a frying pan. Let melt on low-medium heat while stirring (preferably with a silicon ladle). When the mixture has become golden coloured add spices and almond. Combine carefully, the almonds will most likely cool the sugar so it will become lumpy. Just heat carefully until the mixture is runny again.
    Pour the mixture over a big baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Cover with another parchment paper and carfully roll with a rolling pin until spread thinly and evenly. Allow to cool, then break into pieces.
