Dough and icing

Beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff. Mix in the icing sugar, cover and chill 6 tbsp (approx. 100 ml) to use as icing. Combine the almonds and cinnamon, add to the remaining egg white mixture along with the Kirsch, mix to form a dough.

To shape

Roll out the dough in batches between a cut-open plastic bag or on a lightly sugared surface to a thickness of approx. 1 cm, loosen with a spatula. Cut out the stars, regularly dipping the cutter in a bowl of sugar. Place the stars on two baking trays lined with baking paper.

To dry

Place a little of the reserved icing in the middle of each star, use a wooden skewer to spread the icing to the tips. Leave to dry at room temperature for approx. 6 hrs. or overnight.

To bake

Approx. 3-5 mins. per tray in the centre of an oven preheated to 240°C. Remove from the oven, transfer the cinnamon stars to a cooling rack with the baking paper and leave to cool.

Good to know
Shelf life: Store in an airtight tin for approx. 2 weeks.
Note: If the dough is too sticky, add some more ground almonds, chill the dough for a few hours before rolling it out.
