These decadent  little pine nut studded crisp/chewy cookies with a hint of citrus and heady almonds, hail from the south of Italy and the island of Sicily. They are a staple  in every bakery and are the absolutely perfect mid morning sweet treat with a strong cup of espresso or to enhance your festive sweets and treats at Christmas time...They make lovely little gifts, just pop into an airtight box and tie with a pretty ribbon x Quick and simple to bake, if you love marzipan these are right up your street... bellisimo ❤️

454g natural marzipan ( not the bright yellow stuff), broken into little pieces

200g caster sugar

2 medium egg whites

Zest 2 large clementines or small oranges

Zest 1 lime

200g pine nuts

Icing sugar to dust

 

Preheat the oven to 150c for a fan assisted oven, 170c for a regular oven. Line three - four large baking sheets with baking paper.

Place the marzipan, caster sugar, egg whites and zests into a large bowl and beat together for 2-3 minutes until well combined. Leave to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Tip the pine nuts into a bowl.

Use a teaspoon and scoop heaped teaspoons the size of a walnut, roll into a ball with your hands then tumble in the pine nuts.

Place well apart on the sheets and bake in the preheated oven for 18-20 minutes or until a light golden brown, remove from the oven and leave to cool. Dust with a little icing sugar

enjoy ❤️❤️❤️
