Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line a cookie sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper.
Step 2
Set up a food processor and combine the Pine Nuts (3/4 cup) with Granulated Sugar (1 cup), Almond Paste (1/4 cup), and Mahlab Seeds (1 tablespoon) in its bowl.
Step 3
Pulse them together until they are fine crumbs. Add the Vanilla Extract (1 teaspoon) and the Egg (1) in next and pulse them in until a wet dough.
Step 4
Lastly, add the All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup), Ground Cinnamon (1/2 teaspoon), Ground Nutmeg (1/2 teaspoon), and Baking Powder (1/4 teaspoon) and pulse them in just until they disappear.
Step 5
Pour the remaining Pine Nuts (1/2 cup) into a shallow bowl. Then scoop out a mound of dough using a heaping 1 1/2 inch cookie scoop and roll it into a ball. Roll the ball in the pignoli nuts and gently press the nuts in to coat the dough.
Step 6
Transfer the dough to the lined sheet, press it down into a disk and repeat until you have a dozen cookies on the tray. Bake the spiced pignoli cookies for about 20 minutes, until they are golden and baked through.
Step 7
When they are done let them cool on the sheet for a couple of minutes, then transfer them to a rack to finish cooling. Enjoy them right away or whenever you'd like. Serve and enjoy!
