For the cinnamon stars

  • 200 g almonds
  • 60 g caster sugar
  • 100 g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp. Coffee Cinnamon ground
  • 160 g flour
  • 2 egg white

For the icing

  • 150 g icing sugar
  • 1 egg white


  • Mix the blanched almonds in your food processor fitted with the knife or in a blender, they must be reduced to powder but not too finely. Put the ground almonds in the food processor bowl fitted with the leaf and add the sugars, cinnamon and flour.
  • Mix quickly then add the egg whites and continue to mix until the dough forms a ball. Place the dough in cling film and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  • Preheat your oven to 150 ° C. Roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1 cm and cut out stars (or other shapes ^^) using a cookie cutter. Place the shortbread on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and cook for 8 minutes. Take out of the oven and let cool completely.
  • For the icing, whip the egg white to stiff peaks then gently fold in the icing sugar. Brush the completely cooled stars and let dry for a few hours.


Storage: Once the icing is dry, you can store the cinnamon stars for several weeks in an airtight metal box.
