Vegan Cinnamon SunButter Star Cookies (Zimtsterne) made with almond flour, SunButter, and a coconut butter icing. Perfect for a Christmas cookie exchange!
Today I’ve got a Christmas cookie recipe for you that’s anything but ordinary.
Move over sugar cookies, I give you…Cinnamon Star Cookies!
When we visited M’s family in Kentucky this fall, they pulled out some old German textbooks for me to continue to learn the language.
One of my main goals for next year (are we allowing new year’s resolutions yet?) is to improve my German!
They also pulled out some classic German cookbooks, including a recipe for these Cinnamon Star Cookies, or, Zimtsterne, in German.
I had a sneaky feeling that I could easily adapt the original to be vegan and gluten-free, and I was right!
The cookies are traditionally made with egg-whites and powdered sugar, but I subbed in flax egg and coconut sugar with a delicious outcome.
The result is these vegan Cinnamon SunButter Star Cookies (Zimtsterne) made with almond flour, SunButter, and coconut butter icing.
They’re perfect to make and bake for a Christmas cookie exchange this holiday season!
