Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

This recipe is a great winter snack for all those nut-lovers.  They are super easy to make and the end result is divine.  Cinnamony, sugary, sweet, and salty...all at the same time.
I made them all last winter and everyone who tried them wanted the recipe!  Enjoy!

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

1 cup white sugar
½ tsp. salt
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 egg white
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups almonds

Preheat oven to 250. Cover a 13x17” baking sheet with parchment paper, or grease well. In small bowl combine sugar, salt and cinnamon. Set aside. In a large 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 evenly on the prepared pan. Bake for one hour, stirring half way through. Allow to cool, then store in an airtight container.
