Happy Wednesday. Sorry I'm late posting today....it was a hectic Tuesday. This week's guest, A.S. Fenichel (Check out her Monday post Interview with a Hero and learn about the Mayan cultural.) I love Biscotti and can't wait to make this recipe!
Tuscan Dipping cookies (biscotti)
Butter – ½ stick
Sugar – 1 cup
Eggs – 2 large
Flour – 1 ½ cups
Almonds – ½ cup whole almonds
Baking Powder – 1 tsp
Almond Extract – 1 tsp
Preheat oven 350 degrees.
With your fingers blend together butter and sugar. (The heat from your hands melts the two together better).
Add eggs and blend. (You can use a spoon) Add almonds and blend well before adding flour, baking powder and extract.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and dump the dough out on it. Shape the dough into a log about 1 inch high (WET YOUR HANDS TO SHAPE THE LOG TO KEEP THE DOUGH FROM STICKING TO YOU) and bake for 35 -40 mins. Until golden brown.
While the log is still hot slice and set aside to cool.
