Pine Nut Orange Cookies

I'm not sure where exactly I got this recipe from as I stole pics of the recipe from a friend's magazine. So I've written out the recipe below, with a few of my own alterations I saw as needed:

1/2 roasted pine nuts
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tbsp grated orange zest
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large egg, beaten (or equivalent)
1/2-1 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla

1. Stir all the dry ingredients together, including the nuts, in a medium bowl. In a small bowl, whisk the oil, vanilla, and egg together and add to the dry ingredients.
2. Mix with your hands until you get a moist dough. Add milk as necessary.
3. Place about 1/4 sugar on a flat plate. Roll a teaspoonful-sized ball of the dough in your hands, coat in the sugar, and place on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.
4. Dip the bottom of a drinking glass in the sugar, and press the dough balls to flatten to about 1/4 inch thick.
5. Bake at 375° for 10-13 minutes, until the tops are golden with browned edges. Let cook on the cookie sheet for a few minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
