Zimtsterne (Cinnamon Star Cookies)

by DorisTLC


3 tablespoons margarine
1½ cups (340 g) sugar
2 eggs
1 egg, separated
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 1/3 cups (529 g) flour
2½ teaspoons baking powder
1¼ teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
½ cup (113 g) walnuts, finely chopped (optional)


Makes 6-9 dozen cookies depending on the size of the cookie cutter.


Mix the butter, sugar, 2 whole eggs, 1 egg yolk, and lemon juice until fluffy.

In a separate bowl, stir the dry ingredients together.

Blend into the sugar mixture.

If using walnuts, stir them in.

Divide the dough into 3 pieces and use a rolling pin to roll 1 piece at a time to 1/16 inch (0.16 cm) thick on a lightly floured board.

Cut the rolled dough with a star-shaped cookie cutter.

Beat the remaining egg white until frothy, then brush the tops of the cookies with it.

Bake cookies at 375°F/190°C on a lighty greased baking sheet for 6-8 minutes, or until golden brown.

Please note that the patterns and tutorials you find here have been designed by Harry Potter fans all over the Internet. The authors alone hold the copyrights and licences to these patterns and tutorials, which means you CANNOT use their patterns to make something that you will sell to others afterwards. You can use them to make things for yourself. You can make some for your friends and ask them to pay for supplies. You CANNOT, however, ask them to pay you to do it as though you had created this pattern by yourself, or try to sell you crafts to a local store.

Think about it. Would you take a Prisoner of Azkaban book, photocopy it, put your name in big red letters on the front cover and try to sell it in your local library? The answer is, obviously, no. Well, selling crafts you have made but not designed would be just as bad!
