    Pleasantly sweet chewy cookies, made with almond paste and pine nuts. A classic Italian cookie. These cookies were so good, they were gone in less than an hour!

      These cookies were delicious!! And so very easy to make. Only change would be to use a disposable pastry dough bag so that cookies can be dispensed evenly and nicely. I didn't have one so I used a spoon, the cookies have to be really set apart from each other as the dough spreads. My new all time Christmas favorite!

      This was so easy to put together. They came out beautiful and tasted amazing. The sugary crust and chewy middle is divine!
