Merry Christmas

Christmas is here and here’s a one of my favorites … cinnamon stars.

The Ingredients
3 egg whites
1 pinch of salt
200g icing sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp lemon juice
350g 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.

With all the preparations done, all that’s left, is to wish you all a very Merry Christmas,
Your Tammy Twinkle

    Looking forward to all the beautiful outdoor pics that you will capture in 2017. Btw, under what category of desserts do these belong to ? What do you call these stars?

  4. I made these this year, but my recipe said for them to bake for 20 minutes!? They didn’t turn out quite right. Will have to try again next year… 🙂 Happy Holidays to you and your family!
