Pignoli (Pine Nut) Cookies
Martha Stewart's Pine Nut Cookies

Pignoli (Pine Nut) Cookies
Recently, the nice folks at Oh! Nuts offered me some of their fruits and nuts. They sent me some really big bags of macadamia nuts, dried blueberries, and pine nuts or pignolias. I used the dried blueberries in the Kugelholf, and couldn't wait to try the pine nuts.

Pignoli (Pine Nut) Cookies
The recipe has very few incredients: pine nuts, almond paste, powdered sugar, vanilla, egg, flour, baking powder and salt. Easy peasy. Here is the recipe on Martha's website.

Pignoli (Pine Nut) Cookies
You need a food processor to grind up some of the nuts for the dough. You roll the balls o' dough in the rest of the nuts. Be sure to make the balls small, or you'll never get the 3 dozen yield. I made several large ones until I realized this.

I think I got my best review ever from one of my co-workers...she said these cookies brought her back to Italy!

By the way, if you are here looking for a Tuesdays with Dorie pie, I'll have that up by the end of the T-Day weekend. Our TWD group got an extension due to the holiday. Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I hope you get to spend time with your friends and family!

Thanks Oh! Nuts for the delicious nuts! I'm going to make an Italian pignoli and honey tart next! So, if you want to bring yourself to Italy, try these cookies - find Martha's recipe here!
Pin It!

Your cookies look great! I don't use pine nuts very much. I've seen quite a few people using stuff from Oh! Nuts; I may have to check them out.

Those are a true Italian Christmas cookie - I haven't had one in years. Too bad I can't reach through the screen to get one!!

I just stumbled upon your blog (no idea how, you know how that goes!) and these cookies look so yummy. I love pretty much anything with almond paste, so I'll have to give these a try!

I've been wondering about Pine Nut cookies lately. Wondering if they were any good. Glad to see that they're worth trying!

Too bad the nut people didn't offer you extra nuts for a giveaway! That would have been nice :)
