One of my husbands clients always gives him a snack bag. Often this is one of the cookies in the bag. I feel in love with them so I asked her to share the recipe with me.

Ingredients

  • 2 c
    marzipan
  • 1/2 c
    sugar
  • 1/4 tsp
    salt
  • 2 tsp
    almond extract
  • 4-6 dash(es)

  • 1 c

  • 2 large
    egg whites
  • 3 c
    pine nuts ( pignoli )

How to Make Pignoli Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 325* F. Lightly grease ( or line with parchment ) baking sheets.
  2. Break the marzipan in pieces into a medium-sized bowl. Stir in the sugar, salt, flavorings, and almond flour; the mixture will be crumbly. Add the egg whites, beating until the mixture is smooth.
  3. Place the pine nuts in a shallow dish. Using a teaspoon cookie scoop, or your lightly oiled or wet hands, drop 1-inch balls of dough into the pine nuts, rolling and pressing gently to coat them thoroughly. You may also simply grab a handful of pine nuts and roll the dough between your palms, pressing in pine nuts as you go; the point is to cover the dough with nuts.
  4. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheets, leaving 1 inch between them.
  5. Bake the cookies for 22 to 24 minutes, until they're lightly browned. Cool them on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
