Makes 3 dozen.

Ingredients:
12 ounces almond paste
½ cup white sugar
1 cup confectioners sugar
4 egg whites
1 ½ cups pine nuts

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325F. Line two cookie sheets with foil; lightly grease foil. Mix almond paste and granulated sugar in food processor until smooth. Add confectioners sugar and 2 egg whites; process until smooth.

Whisk remaining 2 egg whites in small bowl. Place pine nuts on shallow plate. With lightly gluten-free floured hands roll dough into 1 inch balls. Coat balls in egg whites, shaking off excess, then roll in pine nuts, pressing lightly to stick. Arrange balls on cookie sheets, and flatten slightly to form a 1 ½ inch round. Bake 15 to 18 minutes in the preheated oven, or until lightly browned. Let stand on cookie sheet 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
