Pignoli Cookies (Italian Pine Nut Cookies)

These are a traditional Italian Christmas cookie, that are chewy, almondy and delicious! We always have a bunch of these cookies on hand around the holidays in my family. **Please note, that the dough will be very sticky and a lil bit of a pain to work with, but they end up being so worth the effort. Adding flour to this dough changes the texture of them somewhat, so I never add it, but that's a personal choice :) These cookies end result are just like I had them as a little girl, and are my absolute favorite!
