Cinnamon Stars
  • cook time 40 min
  • total time 1h 30 min


30 cookies


    • 3 Egg whites
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • 200 g icing sugar

    Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt until foamy. Add the icing sugar and beat for about 10 to 15 minutes with a mixer or food processor until stiff. The mixture should be very creamy.

    • ½ lemon

    Squeeze the juice from the lemon and grate the zest. Add both to the mixture. Put 1/3 of the mixture into a bowl, which will be used later for brushing.

    • 100 g hazelnuts (grated)
    • 200 g almonds (grated)
    • 2 tsps cinnamon
    • ½ tsp clove powder

    Mix the other part of the mixture with the hazelnuts, almonds, cinnamon and clove powder to form a dough. Cover and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

    • icing sugar

    Preheat the oven to 170 °C top/bottom heat. Put some icing sugar on the work surface (this helps to roll out the dough), roll out the dough to about 1 cm thick and cut out stars. Brush with the egg white mixture and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes.

Happy cooking and Mahlzeit!
