Vegane Zimtsterne | vegan cinnamon stars

My apartment turned into a vegan Christmas cookie bakery last weekend. I baked cut-out cookies, cinnamon stars and vanilla crescents. Unfortunately I forgot the time for a couple of minutes and the second batch of my favorites - vanilla crescents - totally burned. Yeah. I was pissed. Anyway, I think it was my first time ever making cinnamon stars/Zimtsterne. And they turned out amazing! Zimtsterne are an Austrian/German classic...Christmas markets, cinnamon stars & mulled wine. Ohh Christmas time wouldn't be the same without them. The cookies are made without any butter/oil and they are gluten free, too.

(If you are not so into baking, I highly recommend this recipe: raw rum truffles.)

Cinnamon Stars
This is a gluten free recipe :)

    For the batter:
  • 100 grams hazelnuts, grated
  • 100 grams almonds, grated
  • 100 grams icing sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom
  • 40 grams water

  • For the icing:
  • 70 grams icing sugar
  • 1-2 tsp coconut milk or water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1. In a bowl mix together all the ingredients for the batter. First add only a bit of water...maybe you don't even need all of it! If you like mix by hand, but it's gonna be a sticky affair! 2. Chill the dough for about 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 160 degrees C. 3. Roll the dough and cut out stars. 4. Bake for about 7 minutes. Then let cookies cool down. 5. Mix together icing sugar, cinnamon and 1 tsp coconut milk or water until creamy. Add 1 teaspoon more coconut milk/water if needed. Decorate star cookies and voilà!

  1. When we all introduced ourselves here. We were received warmly by all those who participated in the event. Events at venues in Chicago are a lot of fun, giving access to features that aren't always the easiest to get into and aren't always the most wallet friendly.
