Zimtsterne
(Cinnamon Stars)

printer friendly copy

Ingredients;

3 egg whites
2 cups confectioners sugar
1 and 1/2 Cups Ground Almonds
( a nut grinder is preferred or pulse on a food processor. Don't turn them to mush! )
Grated zest of 1 lemon
2 tsp. lemon zest
2 tsp Cinnamon
sugar and flour for rolling out

 

 

 

Whip the egg whites till they form peaks

 

Gradually add the sugar into the stiff egg whites.

Remove a good half cup of the mixture and reserve to a bowl. This will be the topping that you brush onto the cookie.

 

Add the ground almonds, lemon zest, cinnamon and blend.

 

Form into a dough.

 

Sift some flour and sugar onto the work table.

 

Roll out the dough to about 1/4 inch thickness.

 

First loosen the dough if it is stuck to the board and
put onto a freshly sifted area to prevent sticking.

Cut out stars with a star cookie cutter.

 

Brush stars with the egg white mixture. this can take
a bit of practice to get right. Lift the stars carefully
onto a sprayed cookie sheet or lined with parchment
or a silpat.

 

Bake stars at 325 degrees till they are lightly browned on top, about 20 minutes.
