2 8-ounce cans almond paste, crumbled

1 1/2 cups confectioners sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 egg whites

2 tablespoons honey

1 cup pine nuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Place almond paste in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely ground. Add confectioners' sugar and salt and pulse until combined. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until frothy, about 2 minutes. Add almond mixture and honey and beat until smooth. Place pine nuts in a shallow bowl. Roll dough into 2-inch rounds. Roll each round in pine nuts to coat, then place on prepared baking sheet. Bake cookies until golden, about 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely.
