Recipe's preparation

    (In case you don't have icing sugar)
  1. 1.
    * Mill the sugar 30 sec on sp 10. Remove from bowl and set aside. No need to clean the bowl.
  2. Dough
  3. 2.
    * Insert butterfly. Whip eggwhite and salt until stiff (speed 3.5 for about 3-4 minutes, or until stiff).
    * With the speed on 3.5, add icing sugar spoon by spoon through the hole.
    * Beat for another 2 min, sp 3.5 until the eggwhites are soft and creamy.
  4. 3.
    * Remove 100g of the egg white and set aside.
    * Gently fold the hazelnut meal and cinnamon under the remaining egg white (speed 2). If it doesn't work, remove butterfly and use the spatula instead.
  5. Assembly
  6. 4.
    * Transfer the nut mixture onto a baking tray, layed out with a sheet of baking paper.
    * With wet hands, shape the mixture into a 1cm tall rectangle.
    * Spread the remaining eggwhite on top.
    * Bake at 130°C (preheated) for 30 min on the lowest rack.
    * Cover loosely with a piece of alfoil and bake for another 15 min.
  7. Cutting
  8. 5.
    * Cut into rectangles or diamonds while still warm. Once cool, the eggwhite topping tends to crack pretty badly (as can be seen in the picture).


Cinnamon Stars are a traditional German Christmas cookie. Using a cookie cutter to create stars ends up with a lot of "unshapely leftovers", because the dough can't be re-rolled. Cutting the cookies after baking might not produce the traditional star shape, but avoids the inter-stellar leftovers.
