Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread almonds on a baking sheet.
  2. Toast almonds in the preheated oven until lightly browned and fragrant, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow almonds to cool.
  3. Reduce oven heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  4. Lightly beat eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract in a bowl. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in another bowl. Gradually beat egg mixture into flour mixture with an electric mixer until dough comes together. Add toasted almonds and mix until just incorporated.
  5. Turn dough out on a lightly floured surface and shape dough into a 3x14-inch log. Transfer log to prepared baking sheet.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until firm to the touch, 30 to 40 minutes. Allow log to cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Transfer log to a cutting board and cut into 1/2-inch thick slices, using a serrated knife. Return biscotti slices to baking sheet, cut-side up.
  7. Return biscotti to the oven and bake until biscotti are firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Flip each cookie and continue baking until toasted, about 20 minutes more. Cool biscotti completely before storing in an airtight container.

I use this recipe as a base to make other flavors as well. Just substitute the sugar with brown sugar, the almonds with walnuts, delete the almond flavoring, then add mini chocolate chips for Chocolate Chip Biscotti. I also sprinkle any that contains chocolate with flaked salt. Delish!

Just finished baking these and they are yummy. I substituted 1 cup of the flour with almond flour which I make from the almond pulp when I make almond milk. I was out of almond extract so used a little rum extract. Can't really tell in the flavor though. I also used brown sugar instead of white and added in some chocolate chips along with the almonds. The house smelled so good it was hard to wait through the second baking. This recipe was really easy. I put it together in between doing other stuff. In my oven it took 50 minutes the first baking. I'll be making this again and use it as a base to try other flavors as well.

These are very dry without butter and not as rich. They don't spread when baking so remain 3 inch slices. Great for dipping in your coffee.
