One Bento, Cakes, Side dish, and Snack recipe with Almonds, Arugula, Beef stock, Dried onion, Golden syrup, Mirin, Nori seaweed, Smoked salmon, and Strawberry jam made by Kneading

German Zimtsterne (cinnamon almond cookies)

I always wanted to make these, and finally got the guts — oh boy, I wasn't really prepared for the amount of nitty-gritty with making these. I started with original German recipe that called for 500g of almonds, but that ended up being 2 full baking sheets and lots of sneaky snacking between steps ;-) But the result is good, and these cookies are worth the effort.
