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 ❤️❤️❤️

What is an Aphorism.
Now that we’ve covered the aphorism definition, are you ready for more examples.
Nanakorobi yaoki.
Michael Corleone from The Godfather II disagreed with that.
Washington also said, It is better to offer no excuse than a bad one.
Want a few more.
It meant that the person was versatile and adept at many things.
And get this.
That’s why aphorisms, adages, and proverbs are synonyms for each other.
But, the aphorism is short and sweet.
Because let’s face it, perseverance is the key to success in life.
Take a look.
Washington’s message was that it’s wiser to be upfront and deal with the consequences.
The origins of this saying are open for debate, but it’s primarily attributed to Abraham Lincoln.
But these days.
Then use it as a guideline to stay focused on your general theme.

Don't meet troubles half-way.
