  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 cup Butter

  1. Preheat the oven to Put the pine nuts in a skillet over medium high heat.

  4. Stir until combined. Stir the wet ingredients into the flour until just combined.
  5. Knead lightly with your hands a few times until the dough sticks together.
  6. (It's not too messy, don't worry). Pat into a circle on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. The dough will be about 1.5 inches thick and the circle will be 7 or so inches in diameter. Using a very sharp knife, cut into wedges.
  8. Distribute these wedges around the cookie sheet. Bake for 13 minutes or until lightly golden. These freeze well..
