Cinnamon Stars

Cinnamon Stars or as our kids call them “zimetschtärn”.

 @ Mrs. Twinkle

The Ingredients
6 egg whites
2 pinches of salt
200g icing sugar
2 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
700g finely ground almonds

Beat the egg whites and salt. Gently sieve the icing sugar into the egg whites until shiny.Take a third of the egg white mixture out of the bowl and save for the icing. Add the cinnamon, lemon juice and almonds. Mix until it turns into a dough.

Roll out to about 1 cm thick and start cutting out the stars. Now use the leftover icing sugar to decorate the stars. Leave for a couple of hours then put in the middle of the preheated oven (250°C) with the door slightly open for three minutes.

  1. Wow, thanks for sharing these! They look delicious and I might just have to try making them soon. Hoe long would you say you could store them for before they go bad?
