Anne Burrell’s Pignoli Cookies

If you like marzipan or almonds you will love these little chewy, almondy cuties! The first time I made them, I followed Anne Burrell’s instructions and used a disposable pastry bag. My three-year-old, Aja, had a blast piping her own cookies, which I baked in the toaster oven. She was having a hard time understanding why she couldn’t just eat the dough right out of the bag—like she does with icing. Ironically, hers turned out better than mine—which were a bit too big and thus underdone in the middle. This time I used a small cookie scoop, which I found much easier, and the cookies were all the same size (mostly) and cooked though. The slightly bigger cookies were still underdone and stuck to the parchment—and the smaller ones were a little more brown than I think is visually appealing. I thus lowered the oven temp in the recipe from Anne’s 350 degrees for 12 – 14 minutes to 300 degrees for 15 – 20 minutes. I am planning on making these again in the next few days with these changes, and I will then update this post. I still wanted to post this in the meantime because it’s a great recipe for Passover and there’s only 3 days to go! Let me know if you make it and how the oven temp and times worked out for you! I saved some of the dough for Aja and let her pipe her own little cookies using a ziplock bag. She learned how to do this from a fantastic app called Hello Cupcake!   Pine Nuts can be quite pricey; Trader Joe’s carry an 8oz bag for a great price.
