Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a shallow baking dish with 1/2 an inch of water.

On a separate baking sheet spread out the almonds and bake for 3 minutes, max. The almonds will burn if left longer.

5

Fold in the sides as desired (i made flowers with mine) and brush with egg wash to hold them closed.

7

Serve hot or warm. For an extra fancy touch, add some honey and more toasted almonds as a garnish.
