2 cups almonds 1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil 2 tsp packed light brown sugar 1 tsp smoked Spanish paprika 3/4 tsp kosher salt 1 pinch freshly ground black pepper
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the ingredients in a medium bowl. Toss to coat the almonds evenly. Spread the nuts in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake 15 to 20 minutes until fragrant and lightly toasted. Cool to room temperature on a paper-towel-lined plate to absorb any excess oil. Makes 2 cups.
Tip: Triple this recipe and you’ll have enough for a party plus a cup to send home with each couple. These make a sweet favor wrapped in cellophane and tied with a pretty velvet ribbon in an autumn hue.
