Continue to boil for 5 min., then remove from heat.
Meanwhile, beat the egg whites until they are stiff enough to hold peaks.
Add the ground almonds, egg yolks, and beaten egg white to the sugar water mixture.
Return to a gentle heat, and gently stir in the butter, flour, and cinnamon, until well mixed.
Continue to stir until the mixture forms a caramel-consistency paste.
Remove from heat.
Meanwhile, grease an 18 cm/7 in flan tin.
