Roasted Sugared Almonds!
I think these would make a great gift dressed up in some pretty packaging too; we made a batch to send to friends in Japan this week also, since they are definitely more mail friendly than cookies or something would be.
1 lb. unroasted, unsalted almonds
1 egg white
1 1/2 tsp. real vanilla extract
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed (I prefer dark, but either is fine)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 250.
In large mixing bowl, beat egg white until frothy; add vanilla.
Pour in almonds, and stir well to coat.
In a separate, small bowl, stir brown sugar, white sugar, salt, and cinnamon together until well mixed.
Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the almonds and gently stir until the almonds are evenly coated.
Spread almonds in a single layer onto a lightly greased large cookie sheet with edges.
Bake at 250 for 1 hour, using a wide spatula to gently stir the almonds every 20 minutes.
