INGREDIENTS for 0 people
  • 4 eggs
  • ½ lb sugar
  • 7 oz almonds , whole, skinned
  • 1 package baking powder
  • 1 lb Italian “00” flour or all-purpose flour
Preparation

Place the flour on a flat surface and form a well. Place the eggs, sugar and yeast in the center. Then add the whole almonds and work the dough using your hands or a mixer until you have a firm, yet elastic dough.

 

Then form 2 or more logs of dough, about 2 inches wide, and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for about 30 minutes or until the dough is slightly golden. Then remove the baked dough from the oven and place on a cutting board.

 

Slice log every ½ inch to form the biscotti. Place the biscotti on a baking sheet and return to the oven for 10 to 15 more minutes.

 

Remove from the oven, let cool and then serve.
