  • Vaughn's Almond Biscotti

    An easy recipe.... but to be decadent dip them 1/2 way in melted chocolat!

    for a 350 degree oven (no fire)

    3 large eggs
    3/4 cup honey
    1 cup sugar
    3/4 t vanilla extract
    1/2 t almond extract
    pinch of salt
    10 ounces whole blanched almonds
    2 1/2 to 3 cups of unbleached flour

    whisk eggs in mixer with honey, sugar, salt and extracts until thoroughly blended, about 2 minutes

    stir in almonds with wooden spoon and gradually incorporate flour

    flour hands and divide the soft sticky dough into 4 pieces forming logs and placing on a non stick baking sheet. They are about 3 x 11 inch logs, but they flatten out a bit into the biscotti.

    Bake until dough is an even golden brown, about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and cool for 10 minutes, then slice into 1/2 inch pieces. Stand upright on baking sheet and return to the oven until a deep golden brown, about 10 minutes longer.

    Cool and store (or freeze) in a tight container or zip-loc...... pull out a couple for an easy & tasty treat!

    Thanks XJ. Are you back yet?
    Everyone makes mistakes. The trick is to make mistakes when nobody is looking.

      You are now, officially, my hero.
      I pay a buck and a half at Starbucks for these things. I'll try your recipe this weekend after pizza.

        I tried the recipe. Here's what I got.

        Lot's of biscotti and most with some chocolate on them. Mmmm. The dough is wet and sticky, but tastes so good! Can't wait for the morning coffee to try one!
