    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.
