Try out these sweet delicious Cinnamon Stars. This recipe turns out these cookies really well. A great snack to serve during tea time. I like to serve these during Christmas, especially since they are in the shape of a star...but I'm sure these will be appreciated all year round!
Ingredients
  Whole blanched almonds 1⁄2 Pound
  Egg whites 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Confectioners sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Lemon rind 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon

4) In a bowl, add the egg whites and beat till stiff, but not dry.

6) Continue beating for about 5 minutes till the mix is completely blended.
7) Beat in the lemon rind and keep aside 1/2 cup half this mix to use as a topping.
8) Combine cinnamon and ground almonds, and gently fold into the remaining beaten egg whites.
9) Batter should be firm enough to roll. If too soft, the stand at room temperature till firm.
