  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.

A great alternative to almond macaroons.

I brought these cookies into the office and they were a HUGE hit and several people asked me for the recipe! Great with coffee. (I added one step - I drizzled chocolate over them.)

Do you bake the pine nuts before using them in this recipe? Or does it matter?
