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. Courtesy of EatingWell.com

Recipe Ingredients for Spiced Spanish Almonds

1/4 cup light brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 large egg white
1 tablespoon water
1 pound raw whole almonds

Recipe Directions for Spiced Spanish Almonds

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

  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.

  3. Bake the almonds for 30 minutes. Stir, reduce the oven temperature to 200 and bake until the almonds are dry and golden, about 30 minutes more. Let cool before serving, about 20 minutes.
