Cinnamon Roasted Nuts

Have you ever gotten a whiff of the "Cinnamon Roasted Almonds" cooking, as you browse through the malls doing your Christmas shopping, and just wish that you had a little bag of them to munch on?...THEN after you purchase a little bag of them you eat them ever so slowly because you know that you won't get any more until NEXT CHRISTMAS?...well, I have solved your dilemma...NOW you can make these sweet little treats right in your own home and make them as often as your heart desires. They even make your house smell yummy while they cook...it's a win win situation!
Let me know what you think of them....I bet you're going to love them!

Cinnamon Roasted Nuts

4 c. nuts (use Almonds, Cashews, Walnuts, Pecans...whatever you love 
      * I used Almonds and Cashews, because those are my favorite nuts...but really, I will eat any nut)
1 egg white
3 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt
1 T. cinnamon
3/4-1 c. sugar ( I used 3/4 c. and it was just right...but if you want more sugar, add more)

In a small dish combine sugar, cinnamon and salt, set aside. In a large mixing bowl beat egg white until frothy, but don't allow it to get stiff. Add vanilla, mixing into egg white. Add nuts and stir until they are coated well. Add the sugar mixture and stir until the nuts are well covered. Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Spray a large baking sheet with pan coating. Spread nuts evenly onto pan. Bake for 30 minutes then turn nuts with a pancake spatula...then bake for 30 more minutes. Remove from oven, allow nuts to cool. Store in an air tight container....that is if there is any leftover.

Happy Cooking~

  3. Do you use salted nuts from a can, or do they have to be like walnuts for baking, unsalted?
