07 December: Sweet Christmas surprise for our TUI stores

To get our colleagues and customers in all TUI Deutschland branches in the mood for what is probably the most wonderful time of the year, more than 370 Advent packages set off on their long journey at the beginning of the month. Decorated with a small string of lights, the packages contained an Advent calendar and numerous other sweet treats to sweeten the pre-Christmas season and put a smile on the faces of our colleagues and customers.

If you now also feel like the smell of cookies and delicious, homemade cinnamon stars, then bake this cookie recipe:

For the dough:

500 g ground almonds
300 g powdered sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 egg whites
If needed, powdered sugar for the countertop
For the glaze:
1 egg white
125 g powdered sugar


  • Mix the ground almonds, powdered sugar and cinnamon.
  • Beat the egg whites until stiff, add and mix everything with the dough hook and knead into a smooth dough.
  • Chill for 2 hours.
  • Roll out the dough in portions on a work surface dusted with powdered sugar to a thickness of approx. 1 cm.
  • Cut out stars and place on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • For the glaze, beat the egg whites until very stiff. Gradually add the powdered sugar, continuing to beat.

Brush the stars with the glaze and bake in the preheated oven on the lowest rack at 150 °C top/bottom heat for 10 – 15 minutes.
