This year for Christmas-friends-and-neighbors-gift-giving we made granola and cinnamon sugared almonds. A friend of mine in our small group made them as a snack once and I thought they were AMAZING! So I asked her for the recipe and she led me to here.
So easy and so yummy! You must go to the store right now and buy almonds! But buy the big bag, because they won't last!
Cinnamon Sugared Almonds
