I make cinnamon stars every year for Christmas, it’s the one kind of cookie I can’t miss, I’ve been so used to eating them at the Christmas markets and their taste, and shape is perfect for the season.
Cinnamon star cookies
- 1 cup almond flour 100 g
- 2 tbsp sugar 25 g
- ⅓ cup icing sugar 45 g
- ½ tsp cinnamon powder 3 g
- ½ cup flour 75 g
- 1 egg white 30 g – you might need more
- 1 egg white 30 g
- icing sugar 160 g – sifted
In a bowl, mix together the almond flour, the sugars, the cinnamon and the flour. Add the egg white and mix until combined.
Roll the dough on a lightly floured surface, about 1cm height. Use a star cutter and move the cookies on a baking sheet.
Since my cookie cutter is sharp, I had to push the dough out with a knife, hence the lines on the star spikes.
Bake in a preheated oven at 300°F for 8 minutes. Don’t leave them too long because they are going to dry out when cooling down.
Once cold, prepare the icing. Beat the egg white to soft peaks and add the icing sugar gently with a spatula.
Dip the cookies in the icing and spread it with a bent spatula, a spoon or even your finger!
