Almond Biscotti

Almond biscotti

Sometimes, there is nothing better than sitting by the window with a cup of tea, soaking up the summer breeze. Sometimes, the only thing that makes that moment better is a biscotti to dip into that cup of tea. These, my friends, are the perfect biscotti for just that moment. They also pair well with some frozen yogurt, and they may or may not have served as my breakfast for the past few days too…

1 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Butter, melted
2 teaspoons Almond Extract
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3 Eggs
2 3/4 cups Flour
1 1/2 teaspoons Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt

Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes. While the dough is chilling, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Divide the chilled dough into 2 equal halves and shape each half into a loaf that is about 16x2 inches. Place the loaves onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool for 15 minutes, then slice each loaf into 3/4-inch pieces. Place the pieces cut-side down back on the prepared baking sheet and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until lightly golden brown. Cool and store in an airtight container.
