Spiced Spanish Almonds

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.

Prep Time 10 min

Total Time 90 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon hot paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 pound (abo Marcona or raw whole almonds, (see Tip)

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 275°F. Coat a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

Step 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.
