Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

My older brother came to a family dinner with these almonds and we were all in heaven. They are so yummy!  I really like this recipe made with pecans also.  He found this one and changed it to make them even better. So thanks dear brother for this recipe!

It calls for 4 cups of whole almonds. I like to use only 3 cups so that they are coated nice and thick. Yum!

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds
1 egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 cups whole almonds (I use only 3)
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter cooled

Preheat oven to 250 degrees.  Lightly beat the egg white and add vanilla.  Beat until slightly frothy. Add the nuts, and stir until well coated. Add the butter, stir to coat.  Mix the sugars, salt and cinnamon and sprinkle over the nuts.  Stir to coat, and spread evenly onto a 10x15 inch cookie sheet.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Stir every 20 minutes. Allow to cool and store in an airtight container.
