The nutty goodness and versatility of almonds make them a favorite ingredient in many of my recipes. They add crunchy texture and a delicious twist to traditional down-home recipes. Plus they taste great on their own as a snack, like in this much-requested recipe.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

"Disappointing. The batter does not stick well to the almonds. Could use more spices."

"They taste was ok at best... I am sad i wasted 3 cups of almonds on this. These were not glazed. they were more like covered in meringue and then baked. I made a recipe from TOH magazine for these type of almonds months ago. Now I cant find it. that one was awesome. These are not good."
