Recipe Notes

Dress it Up:
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla to the egg white mixture for a soft complimentary flavor.
Change it Up:
Substitute pecans for the almonds. Cook time will probably be around the same, but just watch, stirring periodically, and as the nuts start to smell toasty, you know they are done.
