These classic almond paste cookies are like ones you'd find in an Italian bakery. My husband and children are always excited when I include these goodies in my holiday baking lineup. —Kathy Long, Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin
In the bowl of a stand mixer, crumble the almond paste into small pieces. Add remaining ingredients; mix on low until combined. Beat on medium until well combined and mixture is smooth, 2-3 minutes.
Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 350° until tops are cracked, 17-20 minutes. Cool for 1 minute before removing from pans to wire racks. Store in an airtight container.
