Cinnamon stars - The recipe

Preparation:

  • If the icing sugar has lumps, sieve it; 
  • Mix cinnamon with almonds;  
  • Whip the egg whites until stiff; 
  • Add the icing sugar and work with a spatula;  
  • Combine the rest of the ingredients, working the dough first with a spatula and then by hand, until a  homogeneous dough is obtained; 
  • Roll out the dough to a thickness of 8-10 mm;  
  • Cut the stars, put them on baking trays and brush them with the icing (which should be prepared as a first step in the preparation of the biscuits);  
  • Leave to dry in the fridge for one night;  
  • Bake for 3 minutes at 200 °C with the oven door open.
