Biscotti, which means “cooked twice” comes in so many different variations. Today, I’m sharing Almond Biscotti quick and easy recipe that is perfect when it comes to Christmas gift giving or simply filling the jar, and enjoying for days with delicious cup of coffee. Biscotti cookie is so simple, yet delicious and sophisticated.
1 + 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
1 teaspoon baking powder
pinch of salt
3/4 cup superfine sugar
2-3 eggs, beaten
1 orange zest, finely grated
2/3 cup whole almonds
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a bowl.
Add sugar, eggs, and orange zest, and mix until the dough comes together, then knead in the almonds.
Using hands, roll the dough into a ball, cut in half, and roll each portion into a log, about 1+1/2 inches in diameter. Place on a cookie sheet lightly dusted with flour and bake in a preheated oven, at 350 degrees F, for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. With knife, cut the logs into 1/2 inch thick diagonal slices.
Arrange the slices on the cookie sheet and return to the oven for 15 minutes, or until slightly golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool and crispen.
You can drizzle your Biscotti with chocolate. I decided to leave them as is 🙂
Enjoy with a cup of coffee!
