Yummy cinnamon stars Christmas cookies

Next up on my Christmas Cookies Baking List are these Cinnamon Stars. They are a true classic in large parts of Europe. If you have ever been to a Christmas Market in Germany, I’m sure you’ve seen them or have had them. With an almond/egg white base, they are naturally gluten free, a bonus these days when more and more people are allergic or intolerant to gluten. With just a hint of cinnamon, I’m sure they will be a hit with your friends and family, too!

When I lived in Switzerland, I used buy Swiss Christmas cookies at the local bakery, especially in the beginning of the season. I must say though, that these homemade ones are so much better than the bakery bought ones, not comparable at all! I was actually surprised by this, as I always thought the bakery ones were good quality!
