Having never tasted pignoli cookies, it's hard to say how this recipe compares. But, these have a very unique and wonderful flavor. I like how the rich buttery flavor of the pine nuts balances with the super sweet of the almond paste. I am only giving the recipe 4 stars however, because the ingredients were very expensive and after spending $10 on the pine nuts, I still didn't have enough. I actually needed probably twice as much. Also, I had to use the tube kind of almond paste, but I didn't have a problem shaping them into balls after chilling the dough for about an hour. It was still messy, but kinda fun pretending to be an old world Italian mama!
