Recipe Name: Anise-almond Biscotti Submitted by: Administrator

Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 1

3/4 Cup(s) Whole almonds
2 1/4 Cup(s) Flour
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon(s) Salt
1/2 Cup(s) Butter, softened
1/4 Cup(s) Sugar
2 Eggs, lightly beaten
1 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla extract
1 Tablespoon(s) Anise seeds
To toast almonds, preheat oven to 350øF. Spread almonds in a single
layer on a baking sheet and toast, turning occasionally, for 10
minutes. Set aside to cool, then roughly chop. Sift together flour,
baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl. Set aside. Cream butter
and sugar with an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl until fluffy;
then beat in eggs and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, mix until
combined, then stir in chopped almonds and anise seeds. Dough will be
stiff. Transfer dough to a lightly floured work surface, then, using
your hands or a rolling pin, shape into one long roll, about 3 inches
by 13 inches. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil
(shiny side up). Transfer dough roll to baking sheet, flatten
slightly, then bake until golden brown, about 35 minutes. Remove from
oven--do not turn oven off--and set aside until cool enough to handle,
about 15 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut roll, on the diagonal,
into 1/2 inch thick slices. Place slices flat on baking sheet and
bake, turning once, until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Do
not over bake: Biscotti will feel soft in the middle but will become
crisp and hard as they cool. Allow to cool completely on pan. Biscotti
will keep in a sealed container for up to 4 weeks. Makes about 2 dozen
