This is one of my favorite recipes. They're super easy to make. Frenchy--you could MAKE these--honest.
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 (8 oz) can almond paste
2 egg whites
1 jar pignoli nuts
extra confectioner's sugar for dusting the cookies
Sift together sugars, flour and salt. Set aside
In a medium bowl break up paste with a fork.
Add egg whites and beat on medium.
Add flour/sugar mixture on low. Refrigerate 1/2 hour.
Drop on to greased cookie sheets 2" apart. Press pignoli nuts gently onto top of cookies--about 5 or 6 on each-prssing the cookies down gently but not too flat.
Bake at 300 for 20 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Dust with confectioners sugar.
This doesn't make a lot of cookies. Just about 2 cookie sheets. I nearly always double the recipe.
