Ingredients

  • 1/3

    cup sliced almonds

  • 1

    tube (7 oz.) almond paste

  • 2/3

    cup sugar

  • 2

    large egg whites

  • 1 1/4

    cups (10 oz.) pine nuts (pignoli)

Directions

Position rack in the center of the oven; preheat to 350 degrees . In a food processor, pulse the almonds to a fine powder (don't grind to a paste). In a large bowl, crumble the almond paste into small pieces. Add the sugar and egg whites. Using an electric mixer on low, beat until blended. Increase the speed to medium; beat, stopping often to scrape down the sides of the bowl, until smooth. Add the ground almonds; beat on low until blended. Place the pine nuts in a bowl. Using a 1-inch (2 tsp.) cookie scoop, drop the dough into the nuts; turn to coat. Repeat with the remaining dough and pine nuts. Place on a nonstick or parchment-lined baking sheet, spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake until the pine nuts are light golden brown and the cookies are a bit springy when touched, rotating the sheet halfway through baking, about 15 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack; let cool. Repeat with the remaining dough on clean, cold baking sheets.
