Pignoli Cookies

27 Nov

These are SO good. They are light and airy but also so flavorful. If you make these – they will go SO quick you won’t have time to get one yourself! You’ll have to stash a few to the side for later 😉

Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgivukkah.

Ingredients:
Two 8oz Jars of Almond Paste
4 Egg Whites
1.5 cups of sugar
Pine Nuts for decorating

Instructions:
Place the almond paste into a food processor and pulse until its granular in form. Transfer to a bowl, and gradually add in the sugar. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and fold into the almond/sugar mixture. Mix until everything is uniform. Cover, and place in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes to rest.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Place some parchment paper onto a baking sheet and create small half dollar sized cookie balls. These spread – so try to aim on the smaller side. Press pine nuts (amount to your liking) into each round ball to flatten a little. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they are lightly golden in color.
