MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 17, 2014

"These did not turn out for me as written. I made them exactly as directed and they came out a gloopy mess. I ended up having to put them on new pans and bake them almost double the time and then they came out crunchy. The recipe fails to tell you that you need to use a slotted spoon to transfer the nuts to the baking sheets. Do not do what I did and just dump the mixture onto the pans. There is too much liquid and it does not evaporate during baking. I baked mine for a total of 50-60 minutes. I was pleased with the final texture but was not in love with the flavor. They are too savory for me. I was hoping for something much sweeter. Next time I will try them with 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1 tsp. cinnamon and probably cut the vanilla down to 1 Tbsp."

"Love it made it and gave to coworkers for Christmas 2013 along with some of my other favorite nut recipes and it was a hit."

"This is a delicious recipe. My husband won't eat the almonds when he buys mixed nuts so I am left with lots of almonds. When I found this recipe, I was so happy. I could use up all the extra almonds. I made them today and they are a real winner. And, even more funny is the fact that my husband has been devouring them! I will definitely be making these again. They will make a nice hostess gift, too."

"Not bad i would do them again. My daughter loves them for after school when we did the recipe we sprinkled a tsp more of brown sugar on top when in the pan to give them a little more covering"
