Spiced Spanish Almonds

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/spiced_spanish_almonds.html

From EatingWell:  March/April 2007

Salty, sweet and laced with smoke—the perfect kind of almond for a party. If any remain the next day, savor them over a salad topped with sliced ripe pears and shaved Manchego cheese.

12 servings, 1/4 cup each | Active Time: 10 minutes | Total Time: 1 1/2 hours

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 275°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. Whisk brown sugar, cumin, paprika, thyme, salt and cayenne in a large bowl. Whisk egg white and water in a medium bowl until foamy. Add almonds and stir to coat; pour through a sieve to drain off excess egg white. Transfer the almonds to the bowl of spices; stir well to coat. Spread evenly on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake the almonds for 30 minutes. Stir, reduce the oven temperature to 200° and bake until the almonds are dry and golden, about 30 minutes more. Let cool before serving, about 20 minutes.
