A delicious combo of almond paste and toasted pine nuts gives a decadent, traditional Italian Christmas cookie.
From the original site: Crunchy, chewy, sweet and nutty, these are an almond-lover’s dream. That would be me — the almond lover. I believe most things can be improved with the judicious application of almond extract. Pine nuts are close behind. Need to dress something up? Fling some toasted pine nuts at it, for crunch and flavor. So Pignoli Cookies featuring a half pound of pungent almond paste AND pine nuts? My idea of heaven!
