Cinnamon Roasted Almonds

I got this recipe from one of my all time favorite cooking blogs, The Sisters' Cafe, and have now made 2 batches and am planning to make a third for a ladies meeting I have next week. These are also going in the Christmas goody bags I give to family and friends! Super easy and delicious! Note: the recipe says to use 4 cups of almonds, but the almonds I bought came in a 3 cup bag - so mine are a little extra crunchy - SO good - I highly recommend it!
