Probably, this cookie speciality of canton Graubünden is much less known than the famous Nusstorte. As its name says it contains cinnamon. It is also an ideal last minute cookie as it is done very fast and if you love cinnamon, well then it is a must.

150 g butter
170 g sugar
2 eggs
1 pinch of salt

170 g almond, ground
1 tablespoon cinnamon

140 g flour
80 g sugar and 80 g sliced almond for topping

Preheat oven to 180°C. Whisk butter and sugar until foamy and then whisk in the eggs one by one. Add salt, cinnamon and ground almond. Stir in the flour. Smear batter on the back of a baking form (35*38 cm) and smear the top with milk. Sprinkle sugar and sliced almond on it and bake for 20-30 minutes. Cut in rhomb forms as long as it is still hot.
