Bavarian Sugared Almonds #SundaySupper

Sugar coated nuts with a hint of spice, easily baked in the oven.

Bavarian Sugared Almonds

By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime

This week’s theme for Sunday Supper is nostalgic summer recipes. I chose to do the Bavarian Sugared Almonds because they remind me of old fashioned food fairs and summer festivals, such as state and county fairs. These can also be done with pecans or any kind of nuts really.

Simple to do, while they are traditionally  made with sugar in a heated pan over flame, using an egg to bind the sugars to the nut allow these to be made in the oven with an occasional stir.

You can adjust the spices as you like- I like a milder cinnamon flavor and I think the touch of nutmeg offers a hint of buttery flavor. These are also not too sweet like some I have tried. They make a great  snack to keep around, or as I did- take them along as an optional dessert on a picnic.

I do hope you enjoy and browse the other Sunday Supper recipes for the week as there seem to be lots of good ones!

Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads out there! Till next time-
