Cook Time
  • 60ml aquafaba(chickpea water)
  • 0.25tsp cream of tartar
  • 125g icing sugar
  • 1sachet vanilla sugar
  • 1.5tsp cinnamon
  • 100g ground hazelnuts
  • 250g ground almonds
  1. In a bowl, mix together aquafaba and cream of tartar for 3-5 minutes. As soon as stiff peaks form, you are ready to continue.
  2. Add icing sugar and vanilla sugar to the mixture and mix again for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Scoop out 4 generous tablespoons of this mixture into a separate bowl and set aside.
  4. Add cinnamon, ground hazelnuts and almonds to the larger part of your aquafaba mixture. Combine everything well. You may need to use your hands at the end – yes the dough is pretty sticky.
  5. Dust a surface with icing sugar (or simply flour – but keep in mind that it’s not gluten-free anymore if you use flour) and roll out the dough until it’s about 0.5 cm thick.
  6. Cut out the cinnamon stars and place them onto a tray. Form the rest of the dough into a lump again and repeat step 5 and 6 until the dough is used up.
  7. Preheat the oven to 130°C.
  8. Now it’s time for the aquafaba mixture: spread this on top of the cinnamon star cookies. This will take some time as the mixture is very thick.
  9. Bake in the oven at 130°C for 20-25 minutes.
