Cinnamon stars


Another of those yummy Christmas cookies we bake in Switzerland. This cookie contains mostly almonds and has no flour in it. A very good gluten-free choice.
Enjoy making and eating them.

Cinnamon Star Swiss Christmas cookies

3 egg whites
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
3 1/2 cups ground almonds

1 beat the egg whites until they are stiff.
2 add the powdered sugar and beat some more until the egg whites look shiny and smooth.
3 pour 1/2 cup into a cup and reserve for later.
4 add cinnamon, lemon juice and almonds to the egg whites and mix into a dough.
5 roll out part of the dough to about 1/4" on sugar, so it will not stick. Cut out stars, or any shape you like, and put them on to a greased baking sheet. Repeat until you used all the dough.
6 brush the cookies with the reserved egg white mixture.
7 let the cookies dry overnight.
8 preheat oven to 450F and then bake the cookies in the middle of the oven for only 3-4 minutes.
