Joanne Fluke's Vanilla Crack

So recently we made this chocolate crack, which was delicious, but we had a recipe for vanilla crack as well, so we tried it.  While not as wonderful as chocolate crack, this was still pretty darn delicious.  The calories for 1/48 are around 91, again each piece of candy is varied in size, so that is just an approximation.  We gave this a 9, and it was super yummo, and easy again.  Here's the recipe adapted from Joanne Fluke.

Vanilla Crack 
Preheat oven to 350.
1 box salted soda crackers 
1 c salted butter 
1 c white sugar 
2 t vanilla 
½ c salted nut pieces 
white chocolate, about 10 oz 
Line a cookie sheet with heavy duty foil.  Spray foil with cooking spray.  Cover the pan completely with a single layer of soda crackers, salt side up.  Set aside.

Combine the butter with the sugar and vanilla in a saucepan.  Bring it to a full boil over medium high heat, stirring constantly.  Boil it for exactly 5 minutes, stirring it constantly.  Pour the mixture over the soda crackers as evenly as you can.  Sprinkle the salted nut pieces over the top.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove from the oven, and spread the white chocolate over the top.  Let cool, chill, then break it into random sized pieces.
