120 minutes
For the batter, grate marzipan into a bowl. Add 200 g of powdered sugar, almonds, cinnamon and 90 g of egg white. Knead everything with the dough hook of the hand mixer. Dust a work surface with powdered sugar and roll out the mixture about 6 mm thick.
Cut out small (approx. 5 cm Ø) and larger (6-6.5 cm Ø) stars as desired (dip the molds in powdered sugar in between to prevent the dough sticks) and distribute on 3 baking sheets lined with baking paper.
Keep kneading the dough together and rolling it out until it is used up. Sieve 400 g of powdered sugar for the topping. Beat 100 g egg white until stiff and finally stir in the powdered sugar and lemon juice little by little.
Coat the stars thickly with icing and place the trays one after the other in the preheated oven, 2nd rail from the bottom (electric stove: 150-160 ° C / convection: 125 ° C / Gas: level 1) bake for about 15 minutes. Let the stars cool on the baking sheet.
Only then should you take it down and pack it in cans.
