Yield: 999 Servings
|1 pack||Whole almonds with skin on|
|2 tablespoons||Cold water|
|2 cups||Powdered sugar|
|Dash of salt|
Preheat oven to 250 degrees.
Beat egg whites and cold water to a slight froth. Add almonds to egg whites and soak to coat well, about 15 minutes. Drain almonds in a colander (but don't let them dry out, they should be damp).
Sift together the powdered sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and salt, three times. Coat the almonds iwth the cinnamon-sugar mixture. An easy way to do this is to place the sifted cinnamon mixture into a small paper bag and drop inthe almonds, a few at at ime, hold bag closed and remove from bag with a slottted spoon, place on cookie sheet, continuing until all almonds are coated.
Place on an ungreased cookie sheet, in a single layer and bake for 2½ to 3 hours, taste for doneness but do not let them get too brown.
