      These are very good and the almond paste keeps them nice and chewy. I only rolled one cookie in pine nuts for the photo op. The rest of the batch I left plain. These cookies are super easy to make too. I mixed them with a fork in the beginning and then used my hands as I don't have a heavy duty mixer. Made for Make My Recipe Reunion in the Australian New Zealand forum.

      Wow, we loved these! they taste like they come from a delicious italian bakery. Instead of pine nuts, I topped them with either an almond sliver or a half a marchino cherry. Thank you so much for sharing!

      OMG!!! I have been looking for this taste in cookies for years unsuccessfully til now. I'm enjoying my efforts with a cold glass of almond milk while typing this.. yummmmm. Oh I forgot to mention I didn't have any Pine Nuts so I chopped up some almonds and it worked great. Thank you so much I am one happy cookie monster on almond overload. :-)
