Pignoli Cookies

Description :

These pignoli cookies are made with almond paste, sugar, and pine nuts for a pleasantly sweet Italian treat! Great for gifting!

Ingredient :

  • cooking spray

  • 12 ounces almond paste

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

  • 4 egg whites, divided

  • 1 ½ cups pine nuts

  • all-purpose flour for rolling

Direction :

  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line 2 cookie sheets with foil; lightly grease the foil with cooking spray.

  2. Place almond paste and white sugar in a food processor; blend until combined. Add confectioners' sugar and 2 egg whites; blend until smooth.

  3. Whisk remaining 2 egg whites in a small bowl. Place pine nuts on a shallow plate.

  4. With lightly floured hands, roll dough into 1-inch balls. Coat balls in egg whites, shaking off excess, then roll in pine nuts, pressing lightly to stick. Arrange balls on cookie sheets, and flatten slightly to form a 1 1/2-inch round.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 15 to 18 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheets briefly, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
