Almond Biscotti Cookies
Developed by Jack Achenbach, RDN, LD
Growing tired of the same old 5:30 a.m. routine, I finally decided enough was enough. Remembering an old recipe I had made long ago I made a few changes to create something worth waking to before the night finally subsided each morning. Like a tiny old Italian woman I set to work on my biscotti. With a scoop of this and a dash of that I pulled forth from the oven something worth waking for. Mix whatever you’d like into these delicious treats and start your day off right
Servings: 10 Biscotti
Prep Time: 40 minutes
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, salt, and extract. Then mix in the remaining ingredients.
Place the dough onto a greased baking tray and form into a brick with rounded edges. Bake at 325F for 20 minutes. Cool completely then slice out 1/2-inch thick cookies.
Arrange the cookies face down on a baking tray and bake at 275F for 15 minutes. Flip the cookies over and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
Serve with a steaming cup of coffee and good conversation.
Depending on your preference toast these cookies for longer or shorter for the perfect crispiness.
Store in an airtight container.
