Pine Nut Cookies

No trip to Santa Barbara was complete without a journey to Montecito's Tutti's deli for pine nut cookies and coffee. These delicious cookies combine delicate almond paste with pine nuts to provide a slightly chewy rich flavor.

The recipe had eluded us until Martha Stewart featured this recipe in the May, 2005 issue of her magazine.
