Cinnamon Roasted Almonds


I remember going to craft shows with my mom when I was younger. One of the things I remember the most about the craft shows was the roasted nut stand. Without fail, there was always a booth that sold hot roasted nuts, and you could smell them a mile away! I've never actually made them myself, mostly because I had never found a recipe for them. When I found this recipe on The Sisters' Cafe, I figured it was worth a try. I decided to make these to go along with my Christmas cookies this year, which I still have not finished!


1 cup Sugar
1/2 teaspoon Salt
2 teaspoons Cinnamon
1 Egg White
1 teaspoon Vanilla
4 cups Almonds.

Cover a baking sheet with parchment paper or non-stick spray and preheat the oven to 250 degrees. In a bowl, combine the sugar, salt, and cinnamon and set it aside. In another bowl, slightly beat the egg white. Add vanilla and beat until very frothy but not stiff. Add the almonds and stir until well coated. Add the cinnamon sugar mixture and toss until evenly coated. Spread the almonds evenly on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, stirring half way through. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
