For today’s Christmas baking recipe I decided to go for a Swiss classic, which also happens to be my favourite Christmas cookie. They’re called Zimtsterne, which translates to cinnamon stars which basically describes exactly what they are: star shaped cookies that taste like cinnamon. They also happen to be naturally gluten-free and there’s a hint of Kirsch liquer added to get that authentic Zimtstern taste.
They usually contain a whole lot of eggwhites, however, as I like to veganize my recipes I decide to swap the eggwhites for aquafaba. Other than the oh-so versatile water from a can of chickpeas those cookies only contain five more ingresients, which are icing sugar, salt, cinnamon, ground almonds and of course the Kirsch liquer.
The preparation basically works exactly the same as it would when using eggwhite, the aquafaba just takes a tad longer to be whipped to stiff peaks. You might also have to know that the key to great Zimtsterne is letting them dry overnight so make sure to plan ahead when making these.
So, all I’ve got left to say is: have fun baking and make sure to share you recreations with me, either via E-Mail or on Instagram.
