Want an easy and sweet treat for your holiday table? Bake some almond cookies topped with pine nuts.
We always have a stash of pignoli cookies for our Christmas table. You can make them in less than an hour.
A fan asked for this recipe. She has fond pignoli cookie memories but the recipe slipped away.
She got excited when I told her I’d make some. “Thank you thank you thank you! I can’t wait! I want to surprise my mother with them. Our recipe was lost to the last generation. I should have paid more attention.” Well here you go. I hope these cookies match your memories.
Pignoli cookies are moist and soft with crunchy toasted pine nuts on top. Eat them right away or store them for up to a week in a sealed container. Only problem is I usually don’t have any left to store.
I love pignoli cookies so much I can’t wait for Christmas and make them all year long.
Buon Natale. Buon appetito!
