The British royal family will again celebrate Christmas traditionally in Sandringham, but without the Queen – even without her favorite cookies?

Here is the recipe for baking.

Throughout her life, Queen Elizabeth II had a self-confessed sweet tooth who always appreciated delicious British cuisine.

The British Queen was particularly taken with a sweet pastry at Christmas time: royal cinnamon stars.

The recipe the royal family once shared via Instagram makes it easy to bake the Queen's favorite cookies at home.

How are the British royals spending Christmas without the Queen?

The past Christmas celebrations took place in the British royal family at Windsor Castle because of Corona.

But now that both the Queen and her husband Prince Philip have been laid to rest, the royal family is returning to tradition and will be celebrating Christmas at the Sandringham estate.

Following the release of the Netflix series Harry & Meghan, the former royals will not be spending Christmas in the UK.

Despite receiving an invitation, according to media reports, Harry and Meghan are staying in the United States over the holidays and celebrating Christmas with the children and Meghan's mother.

So they are probably denied the Queen's favorite cinnamon stars.

Maybe there will be Bethmännchen instead, Hilda rolls or even chocolate almond slivers?

You need the following ingredients to recreate the Queen's favorite cookies

  • 1/2 lemon

  • 360 g powdered sugar

  • 3 egg whites

  • 300 grams of almonds

  • 80 g orange peel

  • 1 pinch ground cloves

  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon

You will also need parchment paper, cookie cutters and a rolling pin.

The Queen's favorite Christmas cookies: How to prepare the royal cinnamon rolls

  • Wash half a lemon and grate the zest.

    Then squeeze the lemon juice from half the lemon.

  • Whisk together the powdered sugar, egg whites and squeezed lemon juice and divide the cream into two – set aside one third and place the other two thirds in a large bowl.

  • Add the other ingredients, i.e. almonds, orange peel, lemon zest, the remaining lemon juice, the ground cloves and last but not least the cinnamon, to the cream in the bowl and mix everything to form an even cookie dough.

  • Then knead the dough with your hands, flatten it a little and place a piece of parchment paper on top.

    Using a rolling pin, you can roll out the cookie dough to a thickness of one centimeter.

  • Then spread the remaining cream on the dough and cut out small stars with cookie cutters.

  • The royal cinnamon stars are baked at 160 degrees Celsius top/bottom heat (convection oven 140 degrees Celsius) for about a quarter of an hour.

  • If you have similar tastes to the Queen, you might like Queen Elizabeth's favorite cake as well.
