Almond Biscotti - Perfect with tea !!!


Almond Biscotti is a classic and traditional biscotti.  This texture is crisp and crunchy with a sweet almond flavour and chunks of toasted almonds.  We can use other nuts like hazelnuts, cashew nuts, raisins and even chocolate chips for different variations.  To make it special we can dip the biscotti in melted chocolate.  Bake it for little longer, for more crispy texture.


Ingredients :
  1. Whole almonds (with or without skin on), toasted and chopped - 3/4 cup
  2. Eggs - 3 nos
  3. Vanilla extract - 1 tsp
  4. Almond extract - 1/2 tsp
  5. All purpose flour  (260 gms) - 2 cups 
  6. Granulated sugar (150 gms) - 3/4 cup
  7. Baking powder - 1 tsp
  8. Salt - 1/4 tsp

Method :

1.  Preheat the oven to 150 C and line up the baking pan with parchment paper.

2.  In a bowl, whisk together eggs, vanilla extract and almond extract.

3.  In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add in the chopped almonds.


4.  Add the egg mixture and stir until a dough forms.  Divide the dough in  half and roll them like a log on a floured surface.

5.  Transfer the logs to the prepared baking sheet and bake for 35 mins or until firm to touch.  Allow them to cool for 10 mins.

6.  Cut logs into slices and place them back on the baking sheet.  Bake about 10-15 mins, turn slices over, and bake for another 10-15 mins or until firm to the touch.  Cool completely and store in an airtight container for longer use. 


Happy baking.
