Recipe for Christmas cinnamon stars:
- 500 g ground almonds
- 300 g icing sugar
- 2 egg-whites
- 2 tbsp Amaretto
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- For the glaze:
- 1 egg white
- 130 g icing sugar
- Preheat oven to 160°, line a baking tray with baking paper.
- Mix all ingredients and form into a ball, roll out to a thickness of approx. 0.5 mm on a floured work surface and cut out the stars.
- For the icing, beat the egg whites with the icing sugar until stiff and spread over the stars. Bake in a preheated oven for 10-15 minutes.
Leave to cool on a grid.
- Fill portions of small plastic or paper bags in the personalised coffee cups, close with a Christmas bow and your gift is ready!
For those who already have everything: the personalised wine bottle
What do you gift to someone who already has everything? Wine. A good bottle of wine is always a welcome gift. However, it is not very inventive – unless the bottle has a very personal, self-designed label. Whether with pictures or with a beautiful Christmas greeting, a tendingly boring gift will suddenly become the absolute highlight of the gift giving!
