Just six pantry ingredients make a quick, giftable treat or a perfect party-starting snack.


  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 egg whites, at room temperature
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 cups whole natural California almonds
  • 4 teaspoons cinnamon


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Place the butter on a 15 1/2 by 10 1/2-inch jellyroll pan; place in the oven to melt the butter (about 7 minutes).

Meanwhile, beat the egg whites with the salt until frothy; gradually add the sugar, beating into stiff peaks. Gently fold in the almonds and cinnamon.

Pour the almond mixture onto the jellyroll pan; toss with the butter. Bake about 40 minutes, tossing every 10 minutes, until the almonds are crisp.

Serve warm or at room temperature. Store cooled almonds in an airtight container up to 2 weeks.
