1/2 stick

How to Make Biscotti


  • 1350* oven
  • 2Combine flour, sugar, baking powder.
    Slice very cold butter into flour mix.
    Using a fork mix together until evenly crumbly.
  • 3Using a spoon stir in egg whites, and vanilla, and almond extracts.
  • 4Fold in 1 ounce = 1/8 C of the nuts.
  • 5FLOUR YOUR HANDS & the counter.
  • 6Roll dough into logs 1 inch in diameter.
  • 7Press 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!
  • 8Place 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!
  • 9Bake 20 minutes if pre sliced into small cookies
    30 minutes if left as whole logs.
    Cool 10 minutes.
  • 10If you baked them in log form - slice on the diagonal.
    This is quite messy.
  • 11If 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.
