Almendras de Alcalá

Visitors come to Alcalá de Henares to see the sensational Plateresque architecture of its old university, but few will leave without passing through one of the city’ s many candy shops to purchase these celebrated sugar-coated almonds.


  • 1 cup almonds with skins
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon


Line a cookie sheet with a greased piece of foil. In a skillet, mix together all ingredients and boil over a high flame, stirring constantly, until the sugar crystallizes.

Spread the mixture on the cookie tray, separating it into individual sugar-coated almonds. Cool.
