Vegan Cinnamon Star Cookies (gf)

Vegan Cinnamon Star Christmas Cookies

There are a few types of Christmas cookies that you can find everywhere in Germany around Christmas – the classics. Next to simple butter cookies, you have vanilla moon cookies, and these cinnamon stars.

This is a vegan and gluten-free version of gingerbread cinnamon stars and I have received only positive feedback so far. In fact, since everyone loved them so much, I had to make a second batch!

  • 100g powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 150g ground almonds
  • 200g ground hazelnuts
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 50ml cold water
  • flour for the surface

For the frosting:

  • 150g powdered sugar
  • about 10 – 15 tsp plant-based milk
  • 2 Tbsp cinnamon


  1. In a big bowl, mix the nuts, powdered sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Add the lemon juice and water and kned the dough by hand until it is a sticky mass. Don’t worry though if it still crumbles a bit – when you roll it out, it will stick together.
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  4. Sprinkle some flour on a surface, place the dough on it, and a sheet of baking paper on top of the dough. Roll out the dough until it is about 0.5cm thick.
  5. Remove the baking paper and use a star-shaped cookie cutter to cut out as many cookies as possible. Gently place them on a baking sheet and continue to roll out and cut the remaining dough, until it is used up.
  6. Bake the cookies in the oven for 6 minutes. They are not supposed to harden or turn brown, they should still be soft. Remove them from the oven and let them cool.
  7. For the frosting, mix the powdered sugar and oat milk in a bowl, until it is a thick mass. Spread the frosting on the cooled stars with a spoon and let it harden.
