Step 1: Ingredients and Tools
- 3 eggs
- 500 g (1.1 lb) grated almonds
- 400 g (0.88 lb) powdered sugar
- 1.5 tbsp cinnamon
- knife or spoon
- pastry bag (if you want to use the bottle I had you can get it here)
- food coloring
- plastic wrap
- rolling pin (not in the picture)
- star shaped cutter (not in the picture)
Step 2: The Baking, First Part
First separate the eggs (from the yolks). Add a dash of salt to the egg whites and beat them until they are stiff (as shown in the picture). Then add the powdered sugar, beat it to a homogeneous mass, add some yellow food colouring and beat it again until it is all well mixed. Now put about a third of the mass aside, you will need that for the frosting later on.
Change the egg whip with the dough hook and add the almonds and the cinnamon to the other 2/3 of your coloured egg white. Beat it again until you get properly mixed dough (as shown in the pictures).
Step 3: The Baking, Second Part
Fill the rest of your egg white-powdered sugar mixture into the pastry bag and cover the stars with it evenly. Put them into the preheated oven for about 5 minutes. Note: You have to be really careful about not baking them too long, because then the frosting gets brown and your stars will taste more like roasted almonds than like cinnamon.
