I have noticed that most stores in our area now only sell pignoli nuts from China. They taste different to me. They seem to have a bitter after taste. If I am going make the cookies with pignoli. Spending a small fortune on almond paste and pignoli nuts. With the time involved not included. It is a shame that the nuts spoil the cookie's taste. Have you noticed the different as well?
