Gebrannte Mandeln (Sugared Almonds)

I love Traditional Gebrannte Mandeln. They are a German roasted and sugared almonds. I go to a local Scandinavian festival here in Oregon in Junction City and there is a woman who sells these Gebrannte Mandeln and they are incredible, I love them so much that I decided to make them myself and they turned out great.

3/4 cups sugar
4 tablespoons water
3/4 cups whole almonds
1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

Simmer the sugar, water, and cinnamon until syrupy. Remove from the heat and add the almonds. Stir until the sugar crackles. Heat and repeat the melting and hardening process twice. Pour the mixture out an a greased baking sheet and separate with a fork.
