You know those cinnamon almonds that they sell at the mall and sporting events? They smell SO good. I am always tempted to get some, but I balk at the price. Since I never splurge on them when I am out, I decided to try my hand at making some at home.
These are SOOOO good, and they made the house smell AH-MAZ-ING! I could not stop eating these things! I'm trying not to feel too guilty about it. Almonds are healthy, so it's OK. Right? I just don't think about all the cinnamon and sugar on them. :) These almonds would make a great Valentine's Day treat for co-workers, neighbors, or teachers.

- 1 egg white
- 4 tsps water
- 1 Tbsp vanilla
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
Beat the egg white in a bowl until frothy; whisk the water and vanilla into the egg. Stir the sugar, cinnamon, and salt into the egg mixture. Add the almonds; stir to coat completely.
Spread the almonds onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake almonds, stirring every 15 minutes, until the coating forms a glaze, about 40-60 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheet 10 minutes before serving.
