Anne Burrell's Pignoli Cookies
12 Days of CookiesIt’s time for 12 Days of Cookies, Food Network’s annual virtual cookie swap. Each day, visit us here on FN Dish for a peek at new holiday cookies, party-planning tips and top techniques for rolling, spooning, slicing, baking and decorating delicious sweet treats to give — or keep — from your favorite Food Network chefs.

A classic Italian Christmas cookie, the pignoli is made with just a handful of ingredients and takes only 35 minutes to prepare. Anne mixes up a light batter of almond paste, smooth powdered sugar and warm cinnamon, as well as lemon zest, which offers a bright, fresh flavor. After you’ve piped the dough into 1-inch balls, top them with crunchy pine nuts — pignoli — and bake for just 12-14 minutes until these two-bite cookies are a golden hue.
