Cinnamon Christmas Star Cookies – 6 Ingredients

I remember the first time my grandmother took me into the kitchen to help her with baking – what a wonderful memory. The great smell from the stove as well as spending precious time with my grandmother, who taught me so much about cooking, was priceless!

Now, to bond with my nieces and nephews, I take every opportunity I can to take them into the kitchen and make food with them. Not only is this a wonderful time for them to learn how to cook, it’s also a good way to teach them about healthy eating, something I am passionate about.

These Christmas cookies might not be exactly the healthiest thing to make, they’re made with sugar after all, but they contain a lot less than most store-bought cookies, and they don’t contain any artificial additives either.

Kids love making cookies, and they love eating them too. Why not combine the two this Christmas with this super-easy, delicious cinnamon star recipe!

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 25 minutes

Number of servings: 18 cookies

  • 2 2/3 cups of almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 ½ cups confectioner’s sugar

  8. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until they turn a light brown and are slightly soft in the center
