Directions:
In a medium bowl, break up almond paste until it resembles cornmeal. Add egg whites, beat until well-blended and fairly smooth. Stir in sugars, flour and salt, mixing until well-blended. Drop mixture by slightly rounded teaspoons, 2 inches apart on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Press down lightly so dough is around 1 1/2 inches in diameter and press some pignoli nuts into each. Bake in a preheated 300 oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Remove to wire rack; cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Personal Notes:
This is a traditional Italian cookie that our mom used to make for our dad. We did not like them as much as kids, but our tastes have changed and now we find ourselves looking forward to eating them on special occasions!
