 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 egg whites
  • 10 oz. almost paste, crumbled
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. almond extract
  • 1 cup pine nuts
  • Confectioners' sugar, to sprinkle


In a medium bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat together the sugar and egg whites.
Crumble the almond paste into the egg mixture and add the salt and almond extract.
Whip the mixture until the consistency is even and smooth, about 5 minutes.
When mixture is smooth, set aside allowing the batter to firm up, about 10 minutes.
In the meantime, preheat oven to 350 F.
Prepare two cookie sheets with parchment.
Place pignoli in a small bowl.
When batter is firm enough, scoop (scant) ½ Tbsp. measures, you'll need a second spoon to slip the batter out of the measuring spoon, and roll in the pignoli.
Rest cookies on prepared cookie sheets about 1 inch apart.
Bake for 13 - 15 minutes or until golden, rotating the two pans from the upper and lower thirds of the oven, half way through baking.
Cool completely then sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.
