Cinnamon Stars: The Royal Family’s Favorite Cookies

Cinnamon Stars: The Royal Family’s Favorite Cookies

  • Gluten-Free
  • 1h 35 min
  • Serves 19
  • Medium




Can’t afford spending Christmas at a palace? Luckily, you can still enjoy the same sweets as Queen Elizabeth II. Recently the Royal family shared the recipe for cinnamon stars — their favorite Christmas cookies.

These are delicious gluten and dairy free cookies made with citrus meringue. The treats are easy to make and if you store them in an air-tight container they will keep for up to two months.



Grind the mixed peel until paste-like texture. In a large bowl beat the powdered sugar, egg whites, and lemon juice until soft peaks. Set aside ⅓ of the meringue. Add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl.


Knead a dough. Place it onto a piece of baking paper and cover with another piece of baking paper. Roll out the dough. Remove the paper, thinly spread the rest of the meringue on top. Place in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Cut out the cookies.


Bake in the oven at 325 °F (160 °C) for about 15 minutes. Leave to cool for half an hour before removing the cookies from the baking sheet.

It is best to bake the cookies with bottom heat only so that the meringue stays white. Be sure to try this Christmas recipe from the Royal pastry chefs and tell us what you think!


Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!

I just read the recipe for Cinnamon Stars: The Royal Family and there is no mention on what to do with the three cups of almonds. Add almonds to the bowl whole or chopped???

Most of us only have regular ovens in the USA… will these cookies bake the same here?? It’s a bit confusing, but sounds DELICIOUS!!

Hey are using WordPress for your blog platform? I’m
new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started
and create my own. Do you require any coding knowledge to make your own blog?
Any help would be really appreciated!

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of completely
unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it looks like
a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.

Do you know any solutions to help protect against content from being stolen? I’d really appreciate it.

I like the helpful information you provide in your articles.

I will bookmark your weblog and check again here frequently.
I am quite certain I’ll learn many new stuff right here!

naturally like your web-site however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.

A number of them are rife with spelling problems and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the reality then again I’ll surely come back again.

Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints
for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but
I’m a little lost on everything. Would you
recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many
options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..

Any suggestions? Cheers!

Gambling can be of several types, with every type requiring its
own legal arrangement. In Nevada, for instance, there
is what is known as a”suit.” A lawsuit is an agreement or a contract between a person placing a bet and the person or group putting the cash at stake.
In some countries, a”betting account” is made in which money deposited
to the account is kept by a bookmaker and is not available to gamers;
others allow online gambling but do not allow offline gambling.
In the end, there are”rollover” transactions where the money in a participant’s account is
removed before it is used. This manner, the term gambling
covers a vast range of transactions and can refer to all of them,
as each has its own set of conditions under which it may occur.

Can I just say what a relief to find someone who really understands what they’re talking about on the web.
You certainly know how to bring an issue to light
and make it important. More people should read this and understand this side of your
story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to
tell someone!

Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to
make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone.
I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct
this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share.

Appreciate it!

I think that everything posted was very logical.
But, think on this, suppose you typed a catchier post title?
I ain’t suggesting your information isn’t solid,
but suppose you added a headline that grabbed a person’s attention? I mean Cinnamon Stars: The Royal
Family's Favorite Cookies Recipe – Cook It is a little boring.
You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news
titles to grab people interested. You might add a video or
a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what
you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.

Thanks for the auspicious writeup. It in truth used
to be a enjoyment account it. Glance complex to more added
agreeable from you! By the way, how can we keep in touch?

Have you ever heard of second life (sl for short). It is basically a video game where you can do anything you want. Second life is literally my second life (pun intended lol). If you want to see more you can see these Second Life authors and blogs

This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader
entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I
was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.

I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
Too cool!

Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which
blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems
with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Greetings from Idaho! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to browse your
website on my iphone during lunch break. I enjoy the
information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.

I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, superb blog!

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems
as though you relied on the video to make your point.

You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence
on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
