  • Dough and icing

    Beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff. Mix in the icing sugar, cover and refrigerate 6 tbsp (approx. 100 ml) to use as icing. Combine the cinnamon and almonds, add to the remaining egg white mixture along with the Kirsch, mix to form a dough.
  • To shape

    Roll out the dough in batches between a cut-open plastic bag or on a lightly sugared surface to a thickness of approx. 1 cm, loosen with a spatula. Cut out the stars, dipping the cutter in sugar each time, place the cookies on a tray lined with baking paper.
  • To ice/dry

    Bake for approx. 5 mins. in the centre of an oven preheated to 250°C. Remove from the oven, allow to cool on a cooling rack.
