switch to metric units
2 tablespoons
0.21 oz
finely chopped grass
2 tablespoons
vanilla sugar
drops of bitter almond oil
1 tablespoon
cinnamon powder
pinches of salt
7 oz
sifted powdered sugar
9.625-11.375 oz
grated almonds or hazelnuts and hemp seeds (ground to a powder), grated almonds, mixed with a bit of powdered sugar for rolling out

Put two Tablespoons of butter in a pot and briefly braise the grass with the vanilla sugar over a small flame. Afterwards, mix in the spices and let it cool.

Beat the egg-whites stiff with two pinches of salt, adding the powdered sugar bit by bit. The mixture must be stiff enough that a knife leaves a visible cut in it. Keep two tablespoons of the mixture to spread on the stars.

Now knead in ¾ths of the almond/hemp seed mixture, adding more depending on the firmness.

Preheat the oven to 120 degrees Celsius.

Sprinkle a flat surface with the almond/powdered sugar mixture and roll out the dough approximately ½ cm thick. Cut out stars, and lay them on baking paper on a baking sheet. Brush on the extra egg-white mixture. (If the frosting is not smooth enough, stir in a bit of water.)

Bake on the middle rack of the preheated oven for 20-30 minutes.
