    About this recipe: Also called pine nut cookies. I make them and my family eats them so quickly I have to hide a few so I get some.

    Serves: 12 

    • 230g almond paste
    • 1 cup (225g) caster sugar
    • 2 egg whites
    • 1/4 cup (30g) pine nuts

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Use a pastry chopper (or food processor) to break up the almond paste into a granulated form. Put in mixing bowl and gradually add the sugar.
    2. In another small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the sugar/almond paste mixture gently.
    3. On a greased and floured cookie tray, drop a spoonful of the mixture. Press pine nuts into the top of the cookie (you want to cover the top with nuts).
    4. Bake at 170 degrees C (325 degrees F) for 10-12 minutes. Cool on wire rack.
