Also called pine nut cookies. I make them and my family eats them so quickly I have to hide a few so I get some.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1/2 pound almond paste
- 1 cup white sugar
- 2 egg whites
- 1/4 cup pine nuts
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.
In another small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the sugar/almond paste mixture gently.
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).
Bake at 325 degrees F (170 degrees C) for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
