Food Fridays on Empty Streets: Xmas Cinnamon Cookies

Posted 7:28 AM by Unknown in

It is that time of the year for to be merry and happy and nothing better brings in smiles than a batch of home cooked family cookies that is just to die for the moment it comes out of the oven. So to start the series on cookies to bake and make this Christmas I have decided to share with all of you one of my favorites - Cinnamon Cookies.

Here are the instructions on how to make this scrumptious treat:

Ingredients for about 80 cookies:

3 egg whites
8 oz. powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
4 drops almond extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
14 oz. ground almonds

Step by step procedure

1. Whip egg whites to a peak.
2. Sift powdered sugar and slowly add to egg whites.
3. Set aside 3 tablespoons of egg whites to decorate cookies.
4. Add vanilla, almond extract, cinnamon and ground almonds.
5. Put dough into a plastic bag and roll out to about 1/4 inch.
6. Refrigerate bag for about 15 minutes.
7. Cut bag open.
8. Cut out cookies with a 2 inch star shaped cookie cutter and transfer onto baking pan lined with parchment paper.
9. Brush cookies with egg whites
10. Bake at 250 F for approximately 15 minutes. Reduce temperature to 210 F and bake for another 30 minutes.

Special note:
The brushed egg whites should remain white. (approximately 40 calories per cookie). You can use ground hazelnuts instead of ground almonds.

For those of you that are more visual in your learning style I have found this amazingly simple step by step video on how to make similar xmas cookies that you whole family can enjoy.

I do hope you enjoyed this treat. Please come back for more xmas recipes every Friday here on Empty Streets. Also try and browse around our streets and see what other interesting topics our empty streets has to offer you and am sure you'll find that we do have something for everyone. :)
