Pignoli Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
The solo can is 8oz and the recipe calls for 12. I used 2 cans of almond paste, and multipied everything else by 1 1/2. My other tip - flouring hands doesn't work. My theory? If you can't beat em, join em. sounds gross, but I put some egg whites on my hands when making the balls. Then dip just the top in the nuts, they'll look more like the bakery, and you'll use less. Worked like a charm, they came out PERFECT!! I followed others tips: use parchment, chill the dough. 3 egg whites went in without beating first. Also, remember to make them small and far apart on the sheet, they will get bigger.

Almond-Raspberry Meringue Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
I used to make Rainbow Cookies every Christmas, but with 2 toddlers in the house, I was looking for an easier recipe to use the almond paste I had already bought. These were fantastic, and tasted very similar to the rainbow cookies, but SO much easier! Next year I'm going to sprinkle some chocolate shavings on them instead of coconut so they'll be even more similar to rainbow cookies.
