Pignoli Biscuits

Serves: 40
Total Calories: 52


No-stick flour and oil baking spray
1 egg white, or 3 tablespoons liquid egg substitute
1/4 teaspoon almond extract
1 (18-ounce) package refrigerated slice-and-bake sugar cookie (20 cookies)
1 (8-ounce) package pine nuts


Heat the oven to 325°F. Coat a cookie sheet with baking spray, or line it with a sheet of parchment or a silicone baking sheet, such a Silpat sheet.

Combine the egg white and almond extract in a small bowl. Form the cookie dough into 40 balls. Coat the balls one at a time with egg white and dredge in the pine nuts until each cookie is completely coated with nuts. Fill in any bald spots with nuts by hand, and place the cookie on the cookie sheet. Continue making cookies with the rest of the dough, placing the balls about 1 1/2 inches apart. You will have enough dough to make about 3 batches. Bake until the cookies are golden brown and the nuts have just begun to color, about 15 minutes. Cool on the pan for a few minutes before removing to a cooling rack with a small spatula. Keep tightly covered.
