Almond Biscotti
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 30
  • 2 Cups and 2 Tablespoons of All-Purpose Flour
  • 3 eggs (room temperature)
  • ¾ cup of Granulated Sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon of Almond Syrup or Extract
  • 2 Teaspoons of baking powder
  • ½ cup of chopped roasted almonds
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven 350ºF.
  2. In a bowl, cream butter, sugar, almond extract, and salt.
  3. Then beat one egg at a time, until the mixture is smooth.
  4. Turn the speed to low and add the flour and baking powder and mix until smooth and clump free.
  5. Add the chopped almonds into the batter and mix.
  6. Transfer the dough onto a floured, clean surface.
  7. Do not worry if the dough is still sticky. Have ¼ cup of flour right by you, and knead the dough on the surface and slowly incorporate some of the flour as needed. Kneading is just folding dough many times until it is smooth. Knead until the dough is no longer sticky.
  8. Split the dough into two and shape them into a log.
  9. Place the dough logs onto a greased cookie pan.
  10. With a rolling pin, smooth the tops of the logs to straighten them.
  11. Place the pan in the oven for 25 minutes.
  12. Remove from the oven and reduce heat to 310ºF.
  13. Transfer the cookie logs onto a cutting board and let it cool for 6 minutes.
  14. Cut the cookie into half an inch wide slices.
  15. Place the cookies face down on the pan and bake for 12 minutes on each side.
  16. Let them cool on a wire rack before dipping them in chocolate.
