6 egg whites (room temperature)
1/4 tsp (61 mL) salt
2 2/3 cups (650 mL) icing sugar
2 tsp (10 mL) cinnamon
1 tsp (5 mL) grated lemon zest
2 cups (500 mL) ground almonds

Directions

Preheat oven to 300° F (150° C).  In a medium metal bowl, whip egg whites and salt until medium peaks form.  Gradually add icing sugar and beat until stiff peaks form.  Place 1/4 of mixture in a separate bowl for step 8.  Fold in cinnamon, grated lemon zest, and almonds.

On a floured surface, roll dough to 1/4 inch (.05 cm) thick.  Shape the cookies with star cutter and place on cookie sheets leaving at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) between cookies.  Brush the mixture in step 4 onto the tops of the cookies.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.  Let cool on a wire rack.
