    1. Use a food processor to break up the almond paste into a granulated form. Put in mixing bowl and gradually add the sugar.
    2. In another small bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff. Fold the egg whites into the sugar/almond paste mixture gently.
    3. On a greased and floured baking tray, drop a spoonful of the mixture. Press pine nuts into the top of the cookie (you want to cover the top with nuts).
