Directions:
Separate eggs. Put whites aside. In a food processor, process until the almond paste is in fine crumbs. Using the food chute, pour in the sugar with the motor running into the almond paste. Once the sugar is incorporated, add the egg whites. Process to make a smooth dough. Transfer into a bowl. Dough is sticky.

Using a small cookie scoop, make small balls. Dip the top of the cookie with sliced almonds or pine nuts. (if you wet your fingers, dough is less sticky) Place on a cookie sheet DOUBLE lined with parchment paper. Less sticking. Flatten cookie a little. Bake in a 350 oven for 8 minutes in the middle of the oven. Then move to top of oven for 7 to 8 minutes more. Let cool on baking sheet for at least 5 minutes, then transfer the cookies to cooling rack.
