Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

3 Eggs Separated
1 1/2 Cup(s) Sugar
1/3 Cup(s) 5 1/3 Tablespoons Butter
melted and cooled
1 Cup(s) Lightly Toasted And Coarsely
Chopped Almon
1/2 Cup(s) Raisins, * see note
2 Tablespoon(s) Chopped Candied Orange Peel
3 Tablespoon(s) Orange Zest, grated
3 1/2 Cup(s) Unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
Preheat the oven to 325 Butter a baking sheet or line it with
parchment. In a large bowl, beat the egg yolks with 3/4 cup of the
sugar until light and the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the melted
butter, almonds, raisins and orange peel. In a separate bowl, beat the
egg whites until they just begin to form peaks and gradually beat in
the remaining 3/4 cup sugar until the whites form stiff peaks. Sift
the flour and baking powder together. Fold in 1/3 of the flour into
the yolks; then fold 1/3 of the egg whites in. Repeat, alternating,
until well combined. The dough will be firm and slightly sticky. If
the dough is too soft, add more flour. With floured hands, divide the
dough into two logs approximately 1 1/2 inches wide. Arrange the logs
on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until
they are lightly brown and firm to the touch. Remove from the oven and
set the baking sheet on a rack for 10 minutes. On a cutting board, cut
the logs on a diagonal into slices 1/2 inch wide. Return the slices to
the baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until the
biscotti are very lightly browned and crisp. Cool on racks and store
in airtight containers. Yield: About 36 biscotti NOTES : *Plump
raisins in 2/3 C fruity white wine such as Reisling or Geworztraminer.
