Pistachio Amaretto Biscotti
 
 
Ingredients:

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 and 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
2 and 1/4 sticks unsalted butter or margarine
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup white sugar
2 tablespoons finely chopped lemon rind
1 large egg yolk
1 whole egg lightly beaten
1 tablespoon Amaretto
3/4 cup chopped pistachios
3/4 cup toasted almonds, finely ground
 
Directions:
 
In a bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, baking powder and toasted almonds.
 
In a separate bowl, mix butter, brown sugar and molasses. Then amaretto and white sugar until smooth.
 
Fold in lemon rind and egg yolk.
 
Now mix the two bowls together thoroughly until uniform.
 
Add pistachios and fold into batter.
 
Grease and dust a cookie sheet with flour.
 
Roll dough into 2 or 3 long cylinders, cover with a towel or plastic wrap and refrigerate until the dough stiffens.
 
Preheat oven to 350 F.
 
Coat the outside of each cylinder with whole egg glaze and light coating of white sugar.
 
Bake cylinders for 25-30 minutes or until brown.
 
Allow to cool enough to slice and slice into thick slices.
 
Place slices back onto the cookie sheet.
 
Bake slowly in a 275F oven for about ten minutes. Makes 3 dozen cookies.

That's it!
