Prepare the ingredients for the cookie dough in the kitchen.

Catch the egg white and set aside in a bowl.
Beat egg white
Beat the cold egg whites with the whisk mixer.
Add a pinch of salt to the egg whites and continue beating.

Mix the egg whites with the powdered sugar.
Add vanilla sugar
Add the vanilla sugar to the whipped cream.
Add the ground almonds to the whipped cream and stir.
Add the cinnamon and stir.
Attach the dough hooks and work the dough vigorously.
Depending on the consistency, you can add 50-80 g of flour.
Finish the dough, it should not stick.
Prepare work surface
Sprinkle work surface with flour and powdered sugar.
Prepare part of the dough to roll out and place on top.
Roll out dough
Roll out the dough with the rolling pin to a thickness of approx. 7 mm.
Cut out stars
Cut out the dough with the star cutters.
Sprinkle the star cookie cutters with flour and icing sugar so that the dough pieces do not stick to the shape.
Put the cookie dough on
Place the raw cinnamon stars at a distance from each other on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven at 150°C for 10 minutes.
Remove the biscuits and let them cool.
Weigh out the powdered sugar for the glaze.
Beat the cold egg whites for the glaze, add a little salt and beat with the powdered sugar.
Spread the cooled cookies with the icing.
Take baking brush
Use a real brush to apply the glaze.
This allows the protein to be distributed better and more precisely.
Bake the glazed cinnamon stars on the baking tray in the oven for another 10-15 minutes.
To do this, hold the oven door slightly open with a wooden spoon.
Leave the cinnamon stars with the dried glaze to cool on the baking sheet.
Pack the cinnamon stars in cookie jars and serve as required.
I wish you a lot of joy in the Christmas season!
