Pignoli CookiesUser Submitted Recipe
8oz. almond paste (use the canned kind, NOT the tube)
1c confectionery sugar
2 egg whites
2c pignoli nuts
Preheat over to 350. Generously grease cookie sheets. In large bowl, crumble almond paste by hand. In small bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Add egg whites and confectionery sugar to large bowl. Beat until batter is smooth. Scoop teaspoonful at a time onto cookie sheet. (I prefer to use a cookie scoop. Batter is VERY sticky. Sprinkle cookies with pignoli nuts. Bake for 16-20minutes, until top is light golden. Let cookies cool on tray for 10minutes for cooling completely on wire racks. Sprinkle with additional confectionery sugar if desired.
