Pignoli Cookies II Recipe
- ½ pound almond paste
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 egg whites
- ¼ cup pine nuts
step 1: Use a pastry chopper (or food processor) to break up the almond paste into a granulated form. Put in mixing bowl and gradually add the sugar.
step 2: In another small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the sugar/almond paste mixture gently.
step 3: On a greased and floured cookie sheet, drop a spoonful of the mixture. Press pine nuts into the top of the cookie (you want to cover the top with nuts).
step 4: Bake at 325 degrees F (170 degrees C) for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
