Vanilla Sugared Almonds

Vanilla Sugared Almonds
Prep time: , Cook time: , Total time:


Made with whole blanched almonds, these buttery, crunchy and toasty almonds have a beautiful blond color (almonds with their skins will work too). Pair with a sweet dessert wine such as Sauternes or a late-harvest Riesling.



1 tablespoon unsalted butter

3 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons water

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

2 tablespoons vanilla extract

2 cups whole blanched or natural almonds

1/4 cup turbinado sugar (such as Sugar In The Raw®)



Preheat the oven to 225°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the sugar, water, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg and cook, stirring constantly until sugar dissolves, 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Add the almonds and stir to coat. Spread the almond mixture in a single layer onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool slightly and transfer to a large bowl. Sprinkle with the turbinado sugar and toss to coat. Cool completely while stirring occasionally. Store in an airtight container.
