  Categories: Cookies, Holiday
       Yield: 48 servings
       1 lb Almond Paste
       1 c  Granulated Sugar
       1 ts Vanilla Extract
       4 lg Egg Whites
     3/4 c  Pine Nuts
     1/2 c  Confectioner’s Sugar
   1. Preheat the oven to 300 F. Line baking sheets with parchment or
   waxed paper. 2. Using an electric mixer, cream together the almond
   paste and granulated sugar in a mixing bowl until smooth. Beat in the
   vanilla. Gradually beat in the egg whites to make a smooth and
   somewhat fluffy mixture. 3. Drop the batter by the heaping
   teaspoonful 1 inch apart on the prepared baking sheets. By hand, stud
   each cookie generously with pine nuts, then liberally sift the
   confectioners' sugar over the tops. 4. Bake the macaroons until light
   golden brown, 18 to 20 mins. Let cool slightly, then transfer with a
   metal spatula to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight
   container up to 1 week. Makes 4 to 4 1/2 dozen cookies.
