Another simple but amazing cookie.

1/2 cup sugar
4 egg whites, divided
1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 cups pine nuts
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a small bowl, beat almond paste and sugar until crumbly. Beat in 2 egg whites.
Gradually add sugar; mix well.Whisk remaining egg whites in a shallow bowl.
Place pine nuts in another shallow bowl. Shape dough into 1-in. balls. Roll in egg whites and coat with pine nuts.
Place 2 in. apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Flatten slightly. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks.
