2 cup pine nuts
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup almond paste
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Process 3/4 cups pine nuts, sugar, almond paste and vanilla in a food processor until fine crumbs form. Add egg; pulse to combine.
Add flour, baking powder, and salt; process just until dough comes together.
Roll dough into 3/4 inch balls. Roll balls in remaining 1 1/4 cups pine nuts, gently pressing to coat. Space 2 inches apart on parchment-lined baking sheets.
Bake until cookies begin to turn golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.
