Cinnamon Sugared Almonds

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
adapted from apple peaches pumpkin pie

1 egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups whole almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
scant 1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Foil and grease 2 10x15 inch jellyroll pans.

Lightly beat the egg white; add vanilla, and beat until almost stiff.
Add the nuts, and stir until well coated.
Mix the sugar, salt, and cinnamon, and sprinkle over the nuts.
Toss to coat, and spread evenly on the prepared pans.
Bake for 1 1/2 hour in the preheated oven, stirring evry 20 min., until dry and toasted.
Allow to cool, then store in airtight containers.
