Cinnamon Stars with Orange & Grapefruit Glaze

Posted on 1 min read

We love the smell of freshly baked cookies in the house and therefore always look forward to the winter season. Cinnamon stars are one of the classics among Christmas biscuits and that’s why we have a recipe with a little extra pop: an orange and grapefruit glaze! This gives the cinnamon stars a slightly fruity taste, which complements the cinnamon note.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 250˚C.
  2. Beat the egg whites with a pinch of salt in a bowl until stiff.
  3. Add the sugar, cinnamon, lemon juice and ground almonds and mix well. Tip: If the mixture is too sticky, add some more ground almonds.
  4. Sprinkle some sugar on your work surface, place the dough on it, cover it with a piece of cling film and roll it out about 7mm thick.
  5. Cut out the stars with a cutter and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper.
  6. Then put the cinnamon stars in the oven for 3-5 minutes.
  7. For the glaze, mix 2 tablespoons of icing sugar with some orange or grapefruit juice in two separate bowls. The icing sugar icing should be extremely thick!
