Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. Break almond paste into pieces and mix together with sugar, using your hands to crumble paste. In a separate bowl, separate the eggs and beat the whites into soft peaks. Slowly add to almond paste mixture and mix until just blended.
  3. Place pine nuts into bowl. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and press into nuts. Coat evenly and place on cookie sheets about 1 inch apart.
  4. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, until lightly golden. Let cool on cookie sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to racks.

My grandma makes these all the time. They are the best. The dough supposed to be wet and it kind of looks wrong but thats the way it supposed to be.

I grew up with these cookies at every christmas, they have always been my favorite cookies, ive only just started to bake them myself but they are very easy to make. I buy my pine nuts at warehouse stores (like BJ's) and my almond paste from a local bakery together this lowers the price almost in half.
