This Recipe was posted in the Calgary Sun Newspaper Dec 16th 1999. I have made it almost every Christmas since as gifts to my favorite people! It is loads of work but worth it as they are the best Biscotti I have made

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, baking powder and almonds.
  2. In separate bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, almond extract, and grated orange rind; stir into flour mixture until soft, sticky dough forms. Transfer to lightly floured surface; form a smooth ball.
  3. Divide dough in half; roll each into 12 inch long log. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet.
  4. Brush tops with egg white; bake in 350 degree oven for 20 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool on pan on rack for 5 minutes. Transfer each log to cutting board. Cut diagonally into 3/4 inch slices.
  6. Stand cookies upright on baking sheet; bake for 20-25 minutes longer until golden. Transfer to rack and let cool. makes about 24 cookies.
  7. I like to dip my finished biscotti into very good chocolate or white chocolate as a special treat.
  8. Biscotti can be stored in airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
