Almond Biscotti!


These traditional Italian pastries are incredible and so easy to make! They are the perfect cookie to pair with your morning/afternoon cup of coffee or tea. I love to serve these when entertaining friends and family.


Ingredients:

-2 cups of all purpose flour

-1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

-Pinch of salt

-1/2 cup salted butter (softened)

-3/4 cup granulated sugar

-2 extra large eggs

-1 teaspoon almond extract

-1/2 cup sliced almonds

-3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

-1/4 cup chopped sliced almonds

Next Step:

-In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir to combine and set aside.

-In another bowl using a stand mixer add the butter and sugar. Mix until combined. (*If you don't have a stand mixer, you can use a hand mixer)

-Next add in the eggs and almond extract. Continue to mix.

-Carefully pour the flour mixture into the the wet ingredients. Mix on medium speed until a dough ball forms. This could take up to 2-3 minutes.

-Pour the sliced almonds in and using your hand blend them into the dough.

-Add the dough to a bowl, cover, and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

-Preheat oven to 325 F

-Take out the dough and slice into 3 equal parts.

-Then shape them into 8inch x 2inch logs.

-Place the "logs" onto a large parchment lined baking sheet.

-Bake for 40 minutes.

-Take out and let rest for 5 minutes. Then carefully slice the biscotti into angled strips.

-Lay the biscotti on the side (sliced part facing up) and bake for an additional 5-7 minutes.

-Take out and flip the biscotti to the other side. Bake for another 5-7 minutes.

-Take out and let cool.

-Add the chocolate chips to a glass microwave safe bowl. Heat on 25 second increments making sure to stir after each round so the chocolate doesn't burn.

-Once the biscotti is cooled dip the biscotti into the melted chocolate and lay on a parchment lined sheet. Sprinkle the top with almonds. Continue this step until all the biscotti pieces are coated in chocolate and almonds.

-Refrigerate for 15 minutes.

-Take out and ENJOY!!!
