Ingredients

  • 145g blanched whole almonds, toasted and chopped coarsely
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 260g all-purpose flour
  • 150g granulated white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract

Method

    1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Toast almonds for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned and fragrant. Let cool and then chop coarsely. Set aside.
    2. Reduce oven temperature to 150 degrees C and line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper.
    3. In a small bowl lightly beat the eggs, vanilla and almond extracts together. Set aside.
    4. In another bowl combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Beat until blended.
    5. Gradually add the egg mixture and beat until a dough forms, adding almonds about halfway through.
    6. On a lightly floured surface roll dough into a log about 14 inches (35 cm) long and 3 - 4 inches (8 - 10 cm) wide. Transfer to baking tray and bake for 30-40 mins. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 10 mins.
    7. Cut into slices 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick diagonally and arrange evenly on baking tray. Bake 10 mins on each side (until they are firm). Remove from oven and cool.

I agree, the mixture is rather wet, and it sank dramatically when it went into the oven. It tasted AMAZING though and the vultures (2 boys) have requested another batch with double quantities next time!

Lovely biscotti, very simple recipe that works well. I found that the mixture was very wet once all the eggs went in, I think it might be better with two large eggs or three small to medium eggs. I had to add a little more flour but they came out great.

Happy new year!

It works! And I've never made biscuits never mind biscotti before! I added some the zest of a lemon. Tastes really good!

Very impressed with these, going to make them again for Christmas presents, should look good in some kilner jars. Think they may need a touch more sugar this time round, most other recipe's on the net have a fairly equal ratio sugar to flour. Also I found that sprinkling the top with flour once roughly shaped on the baking sheet allowed it to be rolled with less mess.

These are wonderful. Made them to give as Christmas presents with a bottle of Vin Santo. Very pleased with the result, will make again.

Very underrated recipe - Bloomin' delicious and surprisingly easy to make! (just expect very messy hands after rolling the dough though!)
