Finely ground 300g / 10 1/2 oz almonds and add to the remaining egg white. Carefully fold in the almonds. Season with cinnamon. Finely ground the remaining almonds and sprinkle on the working place. Thereon place the dough and with lightly floured hands flat the dough. Coat a rolling pin with flour and roll out the dough until it's 1 cm thick.
