Cinnamon-Glazed Almonds

The nutty goodness and versatility of almonds make them a favorite ingredient in many of my recipes. They add crunchy texture and a delicious twist to traditional down-home recipes. Plus they taste great on their own as a snack, like in this much-requested recipe.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
