This Almond Biscotti recipe is so delicious and easy to make! I have been making these for Christmas gifts for years and my family always looks forward to them. They are perfect dipped in a cup of coffee!
3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
10 tbsp unsalted butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp almond extract
1 cup sliced almonds
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a large bowl mix the melted butter and sugar. Add eggs, and extracts. Add the baking powder, salt, flour and almond slices. Divide the dough into two pieces. Shape each dough portion into a 13 inch long x 3 inch wide x 1 1/2 inch thick log. Spacing the logs on the baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on wire wracks for about 30 minutes. Transfer the cooled logs to a cutting board. Use a serrated knife and cut logs into 1/2 inch wide slices. Arrange the slices cut side down on the same baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn the biscotti over and bake additional 10 minutes. Transfer the biscotti to a wire rack and cool. Dip in chocolate for a delicious option.
