Sweet and Spicy Almonds!

Ok. So these are so easy to make and so tasty that your going to wonder why you've never made them before. They go great with a beer or glass of wine or simply as a snack on their own (or even over a salad). Just make them, you wont be sorry. 

Sweet and Spicy Almonds

2 egg whites
3 cups raw almonds
¼ cup granulated sugar
1½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat an oven to 350F. In a medium bowl beat the egg whites to soft peaks. Stir in the almonds and mix them to coat them thoroughly. Mix the sugar, cayenne, and cinnamon together in a small bowl and sprinkle over the almonds, then mix to coat. Transfer to a lightly oiled baking sheet, making sure the baking sheet is large enough to hold the almonds in a single layer (otherwise use two baking sheets). Bake the almonds for about 10 minutes, then turn them using a spatula, and bake them for another 5 minutes. Remove and let cool before serving.
