Pumpkin Spice Almonds

  1. Line a baking sheet with wax paper or parchment paper.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, combine water, sugar and 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice.
  3. Over medium heat bring to a full boil.
  4. Add the almonds.
  5. Stir until all of the liquid cooks out, then pour almonds onto the baking sheet.
  6. NOTE: for these no-bake almonds to turn out, ALL the liquid must evaporate. The mixture will turn from liquid to syrup to a stringy consistency, and then crystalizes onto the almonds.
