My Dad made these cookies for last year’s cookie swap. While they weren’t a prize winner, they do taste like an authentic Italian almond cookie, which is pretty good for an Irish guy.

1 lb. almond paste
1 c. sugar
3 egg whites
1 t vanilla

Mix paste and sugar in a food processor in 2 batches. Mix in egg and vanilla by hand. Shape into 1″ balls and roll in chopped almonds or pine nuts.* Flatten cookies slightly. Bake at 350F for 18-20 minutes. Makes 32 cookies.
*A little water on your hands helps if dough is sticky.

  1. I had one Thanksgiving and they actually are better than the Italian bakery ones. Much fresher.–Nanc
