Servings 35 pieces


  • 3 fresh egg whites
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 250 g icing sugar
  • 1.5 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 350 g ground almonds if the dough is too sticky, add some more almonds
  • sugar to roll out on it


  • Beat the egg whites with the salt until very stiff. Sieve the icing sugar and fold it into the egg whites. Put about 6 tablespoons of this mixture aside for the icing.
  • Add the cinnamon and almonds to the rest of the dough and mix well.
  • Flatten the dough between two baking parchments and place in the freezer for 1 hour (or 2 hours in the fridge).
  • Then roll out the dough on sugar to a thickness of about 1 cm, cut out stars with star-shaped cutters and place them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper using a spatula. Dip the cookie cutter in icing sugar every time you use it so that the dough does not stick to it.
  • Brush the icing over the cookie and let it dry for about 6 hours.
  • Then bake at 220 °C for about 5 minutes.
