    Really?!! How generous! I'll have to shop for a coat first since I don't own one.

    Here you go. I often omit one egg and add a can of SOLO almond filling - available in the baking section of most groceries.
    You can experiment with other flavors and the addition of spices to your taste. Have fun and enjoy. I'm making some this afternoon so it's party time. Bring your own blend of specialty tea.

    Almond Biscotti

    Ingredients


    • 1 cup whole almonds
    • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar
    • 3 large eggs (room temperature)
    • 1/2 cup olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon pure almond extract
    • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon lemon zest




    Instructions


    • Preheat oven to 325° F. Position rack in the center.
    • Spread almonds on a baking sheet and toast in oven for about 12-15 minutes.
    • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, salt and sugars).

    • In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Add olive oil, extracts, and zest. Whisk lightly together.

    • When almonds are toasted, remove from oven and coarsely chop.
    • Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
    • Add flour mixture to egg mixture; stir with wooden spoon until just incorporated.

    • Fold in chopped almonds (make sure they have cooled off before incorporating in the batter).
    • Use a large serving spoon to scoop out the dough and place it on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Add another scoop adjacent to the batter on the cookie sheet and keep going until two logs are formed.
      With damp fingers, shape into a log shape.

    • Bake for approximately 30 minutes or until golden brown in color and firm. Allow to cool slightly for about 10 minutes.

    • Remove from baking sheet and transfer to cutting board.

    • Using a serrated knife, slice cookies at an angle about 1/2 - 3/4 inch thick.

    • Place slices back on the baking sheets on their sides, and return them to the oven for about another 15 - 20 minutes (the longer they stay in the oven, the crispier they get). Turn them over at the half way mark.

    • Place on a wire rack to cool.

    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    I'm on my way, Sandy!

    My favorite baker (aka Oldest DD) is on a Keto diet and has done very well - over 100 pounds lost - so I can't throw the recipe at her and ask her to bake it for me anymore. Just wouldn't be right!

    Going to print this and give to my unemployed Youngest DS who took culinary in High School. I'll see what happens.
