I found this recipe for Pine nut macaroons which I made for my friends Passover seder tomorrow. The base of this cookie tastes like the saviatta/shavolette cookies I've been bugging everyone about. I hope I can post it here to share with all my nostaglia cookie craving friends.Love and energy, Vicki
