Lemon Cinnamon Stars

You will need:
2 lemons
250g icing sugar
400g ground almonds
2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 egg whites

Makes about 40 stars (using a small star shaped cutter)

Heat the oven to 200°C.

Line a Baking tray.

Grate the zest from the lemons.
Sift the icing sugar into a large bowl.
Mix it with the lemon zest, ground almonds and cinnamon.

Whisk the egg whites until they are really thick.
Gently fold the almond mixture into the egg whites to make a stiff dough.
If it's too sticky, add more ground almonds.

Put the dough onto a work surface and roll it out until it is about 1cm thick.
Use the cutter to c out star shapes and put them on the baking tray.

Bake for 5 minutes (they have to stay chewy).
Put on a wire rack to cool.

When cool, ice with 125g icing sugar mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice.
