Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

These sweet roasted almonds with a hint of cinnamon make a delicious and easy gift for the holidays but make sure you keep enough to snack on yourself.  The recipe comes from allrecipes.comThese almonds are delicious!

2 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt
5 cups unsalted whole raw almonds
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat egg whites and vanilla extract in a large bowl (just until frothy); add almonds and toss to coat. Mix brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, and salt and stir into almonds until blended. Spread almond mixture into prepared baking dish.
Bake in preheated oven, stirring every 15 minutes, until coating is dry, about 75 minutes.
