Recipe by katie in the UP

I don't know where the recipe originated from. I use them as an appetizer...but if you use sliced almonds...they would be great on top of a 'hearty' salad.

I had just a few minutes to prepare nibbles to go with drinks for Friday night on the front porch. Everyone loved these nuts and wanted the recipe. I didn't have fresh rosemary so just smashed up some dried and worked it in. Thanks so much.
