Cinnamon Sugared Almonds

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

  • 1 pound almonds

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.

  4. I definitely want to try these. I've never made them before, probably because I don't want them around as I will eat the whole thing.
