Preparation steps

1.
Line 3 large baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
2.
Mix together the ground almonds and cinnamon in a mixing bowl.
3.
Whisk the egg whites until frothy, then gradually whisk in the icing sugar, whisking constantly. When all the sugar has been incorporated, whisk for a further 5 minutes.
4.
Add 2/3 of the egg white mixture to the ground almonds with the lemon juice and mix well. Cover the remaining egg white mixture with a damp cloth and set aside.
5.
Leave the almond mixture to stand for 10 minutes.
6.
Sprinkle the sugar on a work surface and shape the almond mixture into a round. If it is too sticky add more ground almonds, if it is too dry, add a little of the reserved egg white mixture or more lemon juice.
7.
Sprinkle the almond dough with sugar and roll out into a rectangle about 1cm|3/8" thick. Spread the reserved egg white mixture over the surface until completely covered.
8.
Dip a 4cm|1 1/2" star cutter in hot water and cut out stars from the dough, dipping the cutter into hot water each time.
9.
Place the stars on the baking trays and leave at room temperature for 2 hours.
10.
Heat the oven to 140°C (120° fan) 275°F gas 1. Bake the stars for 20-30 minutes until firm and the glaze has dried. Do not allow to colour. Place on a wire rack to cool completely.
