Almonds are so good for you plus this biscotti is delicious! That two stage baking might really come in handy for busy people who need to bring treats to work. What a wonderful use for egg whites. I appreciated using HokiesLady review for conversions-350 degrees for first round and 300 degrees for second stage. 90 g flour = 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons, and 90 g almonds=1 cup. I used honey roasted slivered almonds ( always have them around) so that is why the photo looks like it has more texture. I do not have an electric knife so that is why mine looks a bit jagged. Next time I will bake them 5 minutes longer during the second stage to get them more brown. Thanks for sharing ImPat.
Fab biscotti!. I live the the low fat and sugar and thin recipe is a real keeper and the base recipe will be very adaptable whatever I'm I'm the mood to add in. I used finely sliced almonds because I don't like to bite into whole almonds. I can't wait to try them with honeyed peanuts! Thanks for this one Pat. :D
These got rave reviews from everyone. The recipe is very easy to put together. I used Fiori di Sicilia for the vanilla essence which added a touch of citrus. The previous reviews helped immensely. Made for *Aussie Swap*
Say biscotti & more than likely I'm willing to try it! Quite different from many of the other ones I've made, but VERY TASTY, just the same! I did use toasted pecans for this batch, & will be making them again! Thanks for the post! [Made & reviewed as a kidnapped recipe in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #20]
Wow - what a great biscotti recipe! It was hard not to try to eat it the first day because it smelled so delicious. I waited 2 1/2 days before I had to give in and bake the slices. It is wonderful with a nice big mug of coffee! For those in the US and needing conversion: Oven 350F for the first round.. 90 g flour = 3/4 c plus 2 tbls and 90 g almonds = 1 cup. For last baking oven should be set at 300F. Thanks Chef Potts for a terrific recipe! Tagged in Newest Zaar Tag May 2008
