- 3 egg whites
- 450g icing sugar
- juice of 1 lemon, strained
- 30g ground cinnamon
- 500g unblanched almonds
- 125g sugar for rolling out
1 Beat egg whites until frothy and add icing sugar. Spoon out 10 tablespoons of the mixture into a small bowl and reserve.
2 Add lemon juice, cinnamon and almonds to the remainder. Mix well, then let the mixture rest for 20 minutes.
3 Put sugar on a workbench and roll out small pieces of dough at a time until 1cm thick. Cut out star shapes and transfer them to a tray lined with baking paper. Let the biscuits dry for about 2 hours, then brush them with the reserved egg white and icing sugar.
4 Bake the stars for about 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 180°C (regular bake). The icing should still be quite pale. Once cool, store airtight.
