Zimtsterne (cinnamon stars)

Zimtsterne (with tigernut flour)

Zimtsterne or cinnamon stars are one of my favorite Christmas cookies. They are also one of the easiest ones to make.

For the original recipe one needs ground almonds, egg whites and sugar.
Almonds are just great, but I had tigernut flour at home, so I thought why not give it a try!
There is also a bonus of using tiger nuts: they are very sweet, so one can use only half of the sugar normally needed to make these cookies.
