RECIPE - Sweet Heat Autumn Almonds
I am obsessed with pretty much every recipe my girl over at Damn Delicious whips up. When I spotted this recipe in her new cookbook, I knew I wanted to try it out. Granted, I made a few adjustments, but overall, she is the inspiration behind these Sweet Heat Autumn Almonds.
First, preheat the oven to 300 degrees, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Get your ingredients organized and work space prepped.
In a small bowl whisk the egg white, Sriracha and water until frothy (roughly two minutes).
With the "wet" mixture set aside, grab a medium bow, and combine the two sugars and cinnamon.
With your nuts in a large bowl, add the "wet" Sriracha mix until everything is well mixed up and each nut is coated.
Take that sweet sugary mixture and dump in, mixing it up to ensure each nut is spicy and sweet.
Spread the nuts evenly onto the baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, stirring once for perfect baking purposes.
Once your nuts cool it is time to taste (yum) and package (if you are using them for thank you gifts as I did).
I used a batch of small jam jars, my trusty rubber stamp and some autumn ribbon to make these not only a treat for the taste buds but also the eyes.
With a quick stamp, write and ribbon job I was done and ready to share these Sweet Heat Autumn Almonds with all those wonderful people in my life...specifically the few outstanding medical professionals that assisted our family when Baby Mac was born.
These are a perfect and tasty way to continue to celebrate the season and share the spicy sweet taste of Autumn with friends and family! Thanks for the great idea as always DD!
Strive to thrive,
