    These simple biscuits are made from almond meal rather than flour then spiced with cinnamon to create a homely biscuit. Cutting them into star shapes makes them ideal for Christmas.

    • a few drops lemon juice
    • 300g icing sugar
    • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    • ground nuts for dusting
