These are traditional Christmas cookies in Switzerland. They’re called cinnamon stars and are usually coated with sugar frosting. This recipe offers is a healthy alternative for both the cookie and the frosting.
Preparation Time: 60 minutes
For the cookies:
- 80 grams dried apple
- 40 grams ground hazelnuts
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
For the frosting:
Place the dried apple pieces in your food processor, then transfer into a bowl. Mix in the hazelnuts and the cinnamon, blend together well with a spoon or your hands.
Now carefully add water until you get a dough. It doesn’t need much.
Roll the dough and cut out star shaped cookies. Put them on a dehydrator sheet and let them dehydrate for about 2 hours. This step isn’t necessary but cures them.
For the frosting heat up the coconut butter until it is has a peanut butter-like consistency. Mix it with the honey and water and spread it on the cookies.
