Recipe: Spiced Almonds

I’m always on the hunt for Christmas food gifts that mail well. These spiced almonds fit the bill. I’ve made them for years and *think* the recipe originally came from an advertisement for Season-All Seasoned Salt. Yum.

(And by the way, have you picked up a copy of Better Homes and Garden’s Food Gifts? Great photos and 150 holiday food and packaging ideas. I can’t stop looking at it.)

1 large egg (white part only)

3 cups whole almonds

1/3 cup sugar

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Allspice

1/2 teaspoon Season-All Seasoned Salt

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Beat egg white until foamy. Add almonds, tossing to coat. In a small bowl, combine spices, then toss with almonds to coat.

Spread almonds in a single layer on baking sheet well-greased with Crisco. Bake in 250 degree oven for 1 hour. Cool slightly and break apart. Cool completely and store in airtight container.
