These are about as easy and simple to make as can be. They are a holiday staple and always given as holiday gifts along with fudge, cookies, and muffins
Step 1: Ingrediants...
You are going to need:
4 Cups Almonds (get them in bulk at Sam's or BJ's, it's way cheaper than the grocery store)
1 Egg (Separated, you only need the white)
1 tsp cold water
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 Cup Sugar
Step 2: Preheat and Prep Your Egg
Pre-Heat your oven to 250.
Separate the egg white from the yolk.
You have to crack the egg and kinda slosh the yolk from shell to shell until all the white falls into your bowl.
Then add the water and whisk the white until it becomes frothy but not stiff.
Step 3: Prep the Almonds
Pour the frothy egg white over the almonds and mix them thoroughly.
You want to make sure that each almond is slathered in the egg white.
Then mix the sugar, salt and cinnamon. Pour it over the almonds and mix until everythin is evenly coated.
Step 4: Bake
Pour the coated almonds out on an ungreased cookie sheet and spread evenly.
Put in the oven and bake for an hour.
About halfway through, take them out and stir them up. They are gonna be be stuck together and to the pan so use a wooden spoon or spatula.
After they are done, let them cool a bit and enjoy.
They are great warm. Keep the rest in an airtight container to make them last.
(They never last long in my house) ;)
