Pignoli (Pine Nut) Cookies2 cups pine nuts
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup almond paste
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup all–purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350° F. Process 3/4 cup pine nuts, the sugar, almond paste, and vanilla in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Add egg; pulse to combine. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; process just until dough comes together.

Roll dough into 3/4–inch balls. Roll balls in remaining 1–1/4 cups pine nuts, gently pressing to coat. Space 2 inches apart on parchment–lined baking sheets.

Bake until cookies begin to turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.
