I've been making these biscotti for several years now. I found the recipe in a small cookbook called "The Best 50 Biscotti Recipes". My father-in-law loves these biscotti and requests them often.
- 1 cup toasted almond, divided
- 1 cup all-purpose flour, plus
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 teaspoon allspice
- 1⁄3 cup sugar
- 1⁄4 cup butter, softened
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 egg
- 1⁄2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄4 teaspoon almond extract
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Finely grind 1/3 cup of the toasted almonds in a food processor.
- In a medium-sized bowl, combine the ground almonds, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and allspice.
- In a mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter.
- Add honey, egg, vanilla extract and almond extract to the creamed mixture.
- Gradually blend in dry mixture and remaining 2/3 cup almonds.
- On a well floured surface, shape dough into two logs.
- Transfer logs to a baking sheet or baking stone, leaving space between the two logs.
- Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until firm and lightly brown.
- Cool logs on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes.
- Cut logs into 3/4-inch slices.
- Place slices in a single layer on the baking sheet, leaving space around each slice.
- Continue baking about 10-15 minutes or until desired crispness.
- Cool completely on a wire rack.
Followed exact recipe. Great flavor, the allspice is a nice accent. I took off a star for too much sticky work for such little gain. Doubling the recipe helps. I get so many compliments and requests that this recipe is a must for Christmas. Five star taste, four star prep.
My end result were the small biscotti, and got a lot less than 36 servings from this recipe. I've rated these biscotti among the top 2 that I have made .. ever. Great contribution! My taste buds thank you! I have been experimenting with a myriad of biscotti recipes, most of which I got from this site. Thanks a ton, Kim D!!
I got fewer than 36 servings from this, but they were excellent! I substituted reduced fat butter and figure they come in around 50 calories. That's only 1 point if you're on Weight Watchers!
