I can’t wait for our girls to come home to start baking our Christmas cookies 🥰
I started some ahead of time to give away!
My aunt will be here for a visit tomorrow so I did a family favorite… pignoli cookies❤️❤️❤️❤️
We never lose sight of the real reason for Christmas … but we sure do enjoy the traditions, family, and all the prep🥰
I love my family’s pignoli cookie recipe. The pignoli cookies are not like traditional cookies. As far as my family made. I tweaked it a little bit by adding a tiny tiny bit of flour, but they were always made without flour.🤷🏻♀️ so give us a try. I think you’ll love it.🥳
Preheat oven to 325 degrees!
8oz almond paste (I like Solo brand)
4 egg white(2 for recipe and 2 for rolling)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 TBS GF AP flour
1 TBS confection sugar
4oz pine nuts
Mix first 5 ingredients <only 2 of the EGG WHITES HERE>well (I used a good processor)
In a small bowl beat the remaining 2 egg whites
In a shallow dish pour the pine nuts.
⭐️the mixture is sticky so be patient!
Make small 1” balls, roll in the egg whites, the into the pine nuts. Mainly one side.
Place on parchment lined pan.
Bake for 20-22 minutes. Will be golden brown & delicious!
