"These taste like the real smokehouse almonds you buy in the store for a huge price. I made these last Christmas for a bazaar and just found the recipe again. They are good even in the middle of summer. I have also used a combination of mixed nuts and they are still good."

"I had to make a second batch of these because the first ones (the ones I made as written) didn't turn out very well. Just a few notes...don't use salt that is at all coarse or it won't stick. I finely ground the salt for the second batch and it went much better. Also, I switched the measurements on the second batch (1 tsp. flour and 2 tsp. salt) and it turned out with much better flavor, though I might cut it back to 1-1/2 tsp on the salt next time. They were pretty close to the canned ones, though not exact. I used them in my broccoli salad and it turned out great."
"Well, I made this recipe for my husband who is a smoked almond monster. Clearly one cup wont cut it as I noticed "2 bags of almonds" added to my grocery list. Need I say more? Super easy to make & fast too! I did add a little more "smoke" which went over well. Thanks for posting (I think)! Di ;-)"
"Excellent recipe. I forgot to buy smoked almonds for my smokey swiss cheeseball so I tried this recipe---tastes just like the ones from the store for a much smaller price. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Fabulous! This is much better than the overpriced stuff you buy in cans here. My husband adores smoked almonds and he thought these were fantastic. I followed the recipe but cut back a little on the salt as I find liquid smoke to be salty anyway. Thank you so much for posting."
"I could eat these all the time. Great snack and easy to do."
"Just made this and it turned out AWESOME! I made a double batch and followed the recipe exactly, although I didn't use all of the flour/salt mixture because at a certain point it looked like it wasn't sticking to the almonds anymore and was just falling to the bottom of the bowl. I had no problems with burning or clumping (I sprinkled the flour mixture very gradually with my fingers about a foot above the bowl while continuously mixing the almonds) and the almonds turned out perfect! Thanks for such an easy, tasty recipe!"
"This does taste just like Smokehouse almonds! The only problem I encountered was the flour and salt mixture "clumped up" a little bit on the almonds. Tried the almonds in this recipe: Recipe #374903. Thanks for posting!"
"Hmmm? I've tried this recipe to the letter and have to agree with Andi...Wasn't good and was definitely over done...Sandy , could you review and see if there was an error in the timing? recipe? and or mix?"
"I think I did something wrong... Ok, I know I did something wrong. My cooking oil was on the verge of going bad, so that gave the nuts an "off flavor". And I burnt them. Duh. Oh well, I'll just have to try again."
"Who would have thought you could make these at home? Quite tasty!"
"So close to the original, it's almost scary! Thanks for the yummies..."
"These make wonderful christmas treats, and gifts. Easy to make, and I had no idea they were this nutritious."
"Simply FANTASTIC!!! I loved these and learned that you have to make a multiple batch because they just go to fast. I made them for a Christmas gift for a friend and he loves them. Thank you so very much for sharing. "
"These are highly addictive. Made the first batch and ate most of them myself. The second batch I packaged immediately for Holiday gifts."
"Mmmmmmm, love the taste of roasted almonds! And with the smoked flavor they are even better! Thanks Sandy! This was easy and turned out great!"
"These are so tasty and very easy! Very similar to the kind you can buy in the store. I am going to make these as Christmas presents. Thanks so much! "
