Tutti's Pine Nut Cookies

I LOVED Tutti's...a little funky restaurant that was in Montecito and downtown Santa Barbara. I LOVE Pine Nuts. Now...when you put the two together, you can come up with some pretty tasty treats!

These delicious cookies combine delicate almond paste with pine nuts to provide a slightly chewy rich flavor. The recipe had eluded us until Martha Stewart featured this recipe in the May, 2005 issue of her magazine.

I N G R E D I E N T S

2 cup pine nuts (go to Goods from the Woods for more info)
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup almond paste
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

I N S T R U C T I O N S

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Process 3/4 cups pine nuts, sugar, almond paste and vanilla in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Add egg; pulse to combine. Add flour, baking powder, and salt; process just until dough comes together.Roll dough into 3/4 inch balls. Roll balls in remaining 1 1/4 cups pine nuts, gently pressing to coat. Space 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.Bake until cookies begin to turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.
