My Favorite Biscotti Recipe

My Favorite Biscotti

3 ½ cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking powder

¾ tsp. salt

4 large eggs, 2 egg yolks, and one egg white for brushing

2 cups sugar, plus extra for sprinkling

2 tsps. Vanilla

2 Tbsp. almond liqueur, such as Disaronno

1 Tbsp. anise seed

4 cups coarsely chopped whole almonds

Adjust oven rack to lower-middle and upper positions and heat oven to 325 F.  Line two large, rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.

Whisk flour, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl.  Beat eggs, egg yolks and sugar with an electric mixer in large bowl until light, about 2 minutes; beat in vanilla, liqueur and anise.  Beat in dry ingredients and then almonds to form sticky but workable dough.

Divide dough into four portions on a heavily floured board, rolling each portion into an approximate 15-by-2-inch log.  Carefully transfer 2 logs to each baking sheet brushing each with egg white and sprinkling with sugar.  Bake until pale golden and just beginning to crack, 20 to 25 minutes.

Cool cookie logs on baking sheet until tepid, about 40 minutes.  Keeping oven racks in position, heat oven to 200 F.  Slice logs diagonally ½-inch thick with a serrated knife, laying slices on baking sheets in single layer.  (There will be enough cookies for 3 sheets).  Working 2 sheets at a time, bake biscotti until crisp and golden, about 25 minutes.  Remove from oven and cool.  (Can be stored in airtight container up to 2 weeks).
