Cinnamon Sugared Almonds

You know those nuts they sell from carts that have such an amazing aroma you can smell them from almost a mile away?  These are those nuts.

Just a few simple ingredients that you'll likely have on hand, and you can have your whole house filled with that delicious scent in 20 minutes.  Even easier?  Use your crockpot!

Cinnamon Sugared Almonds in the Crockpot

1 1/4 cups sugar
2 TBSP + 1 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla
2 3/4 cups almonds (should be a 1 lb bag)

Whisk egg white and vanilla in a large bowl.  In another bowl, mix sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Add the almonds to the egg white mixture and toss to coat.  Sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over the almonds and  stir gently to coat.  Generously coat the inside of the crockpot with cooking spray and pour the nuts in.  Cook on high for 2 hours, stirring every 20 minutes.
