  • 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

How to Make Biscotti


  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.
