  • 6 egg whites - بياض بيض
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract - خلاصة الفانيليا
  • 3 cup icing sugar - سكر بودرة
  • 500g almond flour - دقيق اللوز
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon powder - قرفة
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt - ملح
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves (ground) - قرنفل
  • 1/4 nutmeg (ground) - جوزة الطيب

Step by step

  1. Beat the egg whites and vanilla until it forms a stiff peak - around 5-6 min. Gradually add icing sugar and beat until well combined and creamy.
  2. Combine almond flour with cinnamon, salt & spices.
  3. Slowly pour only 3/4 of the icing mixture over the almond mix and stir slowly to combine. Bring the formed dough into a disc form and cover wrap with cling film. Don’t worry that the dough is sticky - it’ll be easier to handle later. Place in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight.
  4. To bake the cookies, preheat oven to 120C. Dust a clean surface and your roller with icing sugar and roll out the dough to 1cm thickness.
  5. Spread the remaining icing evenly on top of the dough and use a star cookie cutter to cut out the pieces. You might need to dust the cutter with icing sugar or immerse in water in order for the dough not to stick to it.
  6. Place on the lower oven rack for 12-14 minutes until the dough is baked but the icing remains white.
