Ingredients

1 c
all purpose flour
1/2 - 3/4 c
brown sugar, firmly packed, dark brown
2 tsp
baking powder
1/2 stick
butter, cold
3 oz
eggs, about 2 x-large
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp
almond extract
2 oz
almonds, blanched = 1/4 cup

Directions Step-By-Step

1
350* oven
2
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder.
Slice very cold butter into flour mix.
Using a fork mix together until evenly crumbly.
3
Using a spoon stir in egg whites, and vanilla, and almond extracts.
4
Fold in 1 ounce = 1/8 C of the nuts.
5
FLOUR YOUR HANDS & the counter.
6
Roll dough into logs 1 inch in diameter.
7
Press 2nd ounce ( 1/8 c.) of almonds on top of logs OR
pick up each log & press into almonds on one side only.
You can bake them as whole logs---
I slice each log into diagonal pieces now.
This way you get the crunch w/ one baking time!
8
Place onto baking sheet.
Leave space for logs or cookies to expand.
Use parchment paper on top of baking sheet before placing cookies.
Makes cleanup easier!
9
Bake 20 minutes if pre sliced into small cookies
30 minutes if left as whole logs.
Cool 10 minutes.
10
If you baked them in log form - slice on the diagonal.
This is quite messy.
11
If you baked them as logs,
clear off small broken pieces of nuts
& return to oven for 10 additional minutes.

Biscotti should be a HARD crunchy cookie, not soft.
