These are so light and deliciously sweet.....that eating more than a few is difficult, I would suggest these for any one trying to diet and  eat less cookies....LOL

I also made these with dried cranberries and chocolate chips for the not so in love with pine nut kids.....

This cookie has a taste very much like a marzipan cookie but  the texture and consistency is much lighter

Great recipe and tasty as well! Just one thing which annoys my mind: Pinole is a completely different food. It does include pine nuts, but is prepared with dried corn and some regional ingredients from the mountains of Chihuahua, in Mexico ( Oh yes I know!)... Might as well make the Instructable for it...

Holy Tracker...thank you so much for the comment....you are absolutely correct, i had mispelled the title...PIGNOLI is the correct word for pine nut in Italian...
