Let’s make Roasted Almonds – Bavarian Style with Barbara from MermaidsHatbox

1. What is your recipe?

Roasted Almonds – Bavarian Style


1 1/2 cup Almonds – not peeled, this gives the typical brown color
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon of vanilla sugar

Boil water with sugar, vanilla sugar and cinnamon in a saucepan. 2Then add the almonds and stir until the sugar is dry. Don’t give up, because you must stir 15 or 20 minutes.3

Now reduce the temperature to the half. The sugar begins to melt and wrap the almonds.4

Some like it more, others less crunchy. I quite like having it if the crust is a little tender. Everyone must decide how you like it.5

Now pour the almonds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Possibly separate the almonds with a fork.1

2. What is it about this cookie that you love?
My whole life I love roasted almonds . When I go to the fairs and markets I only need roasted almonds to be happy and satisfied.
But since I know, how homemade almonds taste, I only eat this.6

3. How did you learn to make this cookie?
Many years ago I was on the road and heard a radio show, where the moderators cook roasted almonds in the radio station. They swarmed about the smell and the good taste.
It was magical!!! I would never get to be the idea of making homemade roasted almonds .
Fortunately the recipe was available on the radio stations webpage. When I was at home, first I copy this recipe and in the next weeks before Christmas we make many portions of roasted almonds. Everyone who taste the almonds were excited.

4. Please share a story or memory to go along with the cookie.
Now every year at Christmas time we make many portions of roasted almonds. The smell of candied sugar and cinnamon is everywhere in the house. We fill cellophane bags with these almonds to give away for friends, teachers, and customers.
For Christmas celebrations in school, clubs and private, we made big bowls full of almonds and I get back the bowls they are empty.
