Recipe Ingredients for Pignoli Almond Cookies

7 oz almond paste, sliced
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
2/3 c sugar
1/2 c Earth Balance vegan butter, softened
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 c flour
1/2 c pine nuts
2 tbsp almond milk

Recipe Directions for Pignoli Almond Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 325 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. Pulse almond paste, salt, baking powder, and 1/3 c sugar in a food processor until the mixture is crumbly, about 1 minute.

  3. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and remaining 1/3 c sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture is pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the almond paste mixture and almond extract and beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Sift in the flour and beaut until a slightly crumbly yet soft dough forms.

  4. Pour the pine nuts into a shallow bowl and pour 2 tbsp of almond milk into a small saucer. For each cookie, scoop 1 tbsp dough and roll it in your palms to form a ball. Dip one end of the ball into the almond milk and press this moistened end into the pine nuts. If necessary, use your fingers to press the pine nuts into the dough.

  5. Place the dough balls, pine nut side up, on a baking sheet at least 2 inches apart. Bake for 14 minutes or until the cookies have puffed and spread a little and the nuts are just slightly toasted. Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to wire racks. Store in a tightly covered container.
