Pignoli Nut Macaroons in SoCal

Where can I find good version of these Italian cookies in LA/OC? It seems to me that they are not exist in this part of the country.

My wife and I got hooked on them while vacationing in Boston a while ago as good versions are widely available in the city's Little Italy. We also had good luck finding them in Bay Area.

  1. I had those same cookies in Boston's Little Italy. I didn't want to share what I brought back with anyone!!! Very yummy!

    I've been told that the Eagle Rock Italian Bakery makes these same cookies. I just called them and they said they do. I will have to go check it out myself over the weekend.

    If they're the same - I'll report back! or maybe "ipenguinking" can let us know if you go out there...

    1. Thanks PattiB. I'll try to find my way there this weekend.

      1. pignoli in new york are the bomb! even in little italy, which always feels a bit touristy to me.
