Pinon (pine nut) cookies

Yield: 36 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 Eggs
⅔ cup Sugar
1 cup All-purpose flour
¼ cup Pine nuts; toasted

Combine the eggs and sugar in a heavy saucepan and whisk constantly over low heat until the mixture is lukewarm and light in texture, about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat and whisk until cool; gradually stir in the flour until the batter is smooth.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Butter 2 baking sheets and drop the batter by teaspoonfuls onto the pan, leaving about 1 inch between cookies. Let sit 5 minutes. Place 4 or 5 pine nuts on top of each cookie and let them sit another 5 minutes. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheets while still warm and let cool on racks.
