Vanilla Almonds

Vanilla Almonds

Apparently there was a running joke on my mom’s side of the family when Christmas would roll around. One year, my dad raved about the smokehouse almonds my grandfather shared with us on one of our annual visits to North Dakota. From then on, all family members got a gallon sized tin of said nuts. Year after year. So when I knew my aunt and uncle were going to accompany us on our RV adventure across America (well, maybe just 3 states…but Nebraska has to count as at least 1 1/2!), I knew I had to bring some almonds along. Sweet, crunchy almonds flavored with a nice dose of vanilla and cinnamon. These Vanilla Almonds are crack in nut form…truly irresistible!!!
