Almond Biscotti

>> Wednesday, July 8, 2009

I've tried several biscotti recipes and I always go back to this one. It is simple and delicious.

Almond Biscotti (Southern Living 1991)
2 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup fine chopped almonds (leave a few medium size pieces)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat eggs and sugar until sugar is dissolved (3-4 minutes) add flavors. Combine flour and remaining ingredients and add to egg mixture. Lightly flour hands and shape dough into 8 in long by 4 inch wide by approx. 1 1/2 inch high log. Place on a baking sheet covered in parchment or a silpat. Bake for 20 minutes. Let cool. Cut into 1/4 inch slices (if you want slightly larger pieces - slice on the diagonal). Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes on each side or until crisp.

You can drizzle chocolate or dip one end in chocolate for a very nice change!
