Sometimes you have to follow the rules.
The first batch of pignolli cookies I made, from this recipe turned out perfectly. I followed the instructions to the tee.
As I cook more and more, almost 3/7 (that’s three meals, seven days a week) I take liberties, improvise, create. Not with these babies. When I didn’t make the correct size they sunk in the middle. I tried beating the egg whites first – no good; tried lowering the oven temperature, nope. They have sunk in the middle for 5 years.
Not today though. I followed the recipe closely and it worked.
The trick is to make them the right size! With pignolli cookies, and so many things in life, big isn’t better.
