Beat egg whites and salt until they hold a shape.
Beat in confectioners' sugar, a little at a time, and continue beating until the mixture stands in peaks.
Stir in the cinnamon and grated lemon rind.
Transfer about one third of the mixture to another bowl to use later as a glaze.
Fold ground almonds into remaining mixture and blend thoroughly.
Pat half the mixture at a rime on a board or pastry cloth lightly sprinkled with additional confectioners' sugar.
Pat about 1/3 inch thick, dusting the palm of your hand frequently with confectioners' sugar if mixture seems sticky.
Cut with a small star or round cutter and place on a greased cookie sheet.
Brush tops with reserved egg white mixture and bake in a preheated 300° oven for 20 minutes or until edges begin to firm (the color remains the same).
