Cinnamon stars


the smell of cinnamon and orange will take you directly to the cold december month full of magical lights! this star cookies are so decorative for on a Christmas table… and also very cute to give as a present ❤

Ingredients:

dough
2 egg whites
125g grounded almonds
125g grounded hazelnuts
125g icing sugar
1 (bio) orange zest
cinnamon
a pinch of salt

icing
1 egg white
100g icing sugar

dough:
mix the egg whites with a pinch of salt, add the sugar, cinnamon, orange zest and the grounded nuts, you will now get a beautiful and delicious scented dough! put it in the fridge for 1 hour, roll the dough on some icing sugar, not too thin, because the dough will not rise when baking. So roll it out to about 1-2cm thick, take stars forms with star molds, and put on a baking tray

icing:
mix the egg whites with the icing sugar, make sure it doesn’t get too fluid, but more a tough icing (which is still spreadable), add some more icing sugar if it’s too liquid. Divide this with a small knife over the stars and bake it at 150 for about 10-15 min.

sprinkle the stars with some silver powder!
