Roberta's notes for this recipe:
Wow, these cookies were always a favorite of mine. I love making them due to the smell of the almond paste. We always made these with a nice glass of wine on hand or two or three....lol.

These sound amazing. I LOVE almond flavored anything and I love pine nuts. Have you ever toasted them first to bring out the nuttiness before adding them to the cookies?

no I haven't, due to the baking does that, but worth trying. Will have to try on a batch. I too love pine nuts, but they have gotten so expensive...lol.
