Is there a recipe for pignoli cookies that uses more flour than sugar so they wont get so hard so quickly?

I found this recipe for pignoli cookies on www.cookies-in-motion.com.
These cookies are gluten free.
Almond paste 8oz
Confectioners’ sugar 1/2 cup
Egg white 1 large
Pine nuts 1/2 cup
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Process almond paste with confectioners' sugar to a fine meal texture.
Add egg white and honey. Continue mixing until all ingredients are well blended, and the mixture becomes smooth. The whole process takes about 5 minutes.
Fill a pastry bag fitted with a ½ inch round tip. Pipe 1 inch domes onto prepared cookie sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart.
Brush cookies lightly with water and cover them completely with pine nuts.
Alternatively, drop dough mixture by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. With your wet fingers, roll each portion in pine nuts to cover completely. Place them back on cookie sheets. Your fingers, however, will feel very sticky from handling this dough.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Move cookies along with parchment paper to wire racks to cool completely.
It yields about 2 dozen cookies.Source(s): http://www.cookies-in-motion.com/
