These little biscuits contain a delicious combination of cinnamon and almonds. They don’t take long to make but you need to leave a bit of time between the preparation and cooking stages. It’s worth it though. They’re impossibly more-ish!

Cinnamon Crowns


  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 ¼ cups icing sugar
  • 1 ½ cups ground almonds
  • 1 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • Crown shaped cookie cutter, but any shape will do.


  1. Beat the egg whites using a wooden spoon until they start to become stiff
  2. Add the icing sugar, ½ cup at a time until you create a smooth paste.
  3. Remove 1/3 cup of the mix and set it aside.
  4. Fold in the ground almonds and cinnamon to the remaining mix.
  5. Place the mix in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  6. Lightly dust your work surface with icing sugar and roll the mixture out to about 3 mm thick..
  7. Cut out the crowns using the cookie cutter. Keep dipping the cookie cutter in the icing sugar to help stop it sticking.
  8. Brush or spread the reserved icing on each crown, working it out to all the points.
  9. Leave the tray out to dry out the crowns for at least 2 hours if you can.
  10. Preheat oven to 150 degrees.
  11. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  12. Leave on the tray until completely cooled.
  13. You can store these in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
