Anice e Mandorla Biscotti
Aniseed and Almond Biscotti
(Anice e Mandorla Biscotti)
 
 
Ingredients:
 
3 and 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/3 teaspoon salt
1 and 1/2 cups sugar
10 tablespoons (1 and 1/4 sticks) unsalted butter, melted
3 large eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons aniseed, ground
1 cup whole almonds, toasted, coarsely chopped
1 large egg white
 
Directions:
 
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 F.
 
Line baking sheet with parchment paper.
 
Sift flour, baking powder and salt into medium bowl.
 
Mix sugar, melted butter, 3 eggs, vanilla extract and ground aniseed in large bowl.
 
Add flour mixture to egg mixture and stir with wooden spoon until well blended.
 
Mix in almonds.
 
Divide dough in half.
 
Using floured hands, shape each dough half into 13 and 1/2-inch long, 2 and 1/2-inch wide log.
 
Transfer both logs to prepared baking sheet, spacing apart.
 
Whisk egg white in small bowl until foamy; brush over top and sides of each dough log.
 
Bake logs until golden brown (logs will spread), about 30 minutes.
 
Cool logs completely on sheet on rack, about 25 minutes. Maintain oven temperature.
 
Transfer logs to work surface; discard parchment paper.
 
Using serrated knife, cut logs on diagonal into 1/2 inch wide slices.
 
Arrange slices, cut side down, on same baking sheet. Bake 12 minutes.
 
Turn biscotti over; bake until just beginning to color, about 8 minutes.
 
Transfer to rack and cool. (Can be prepared 1 week ahead. Store in airtight container at room temperature.) Makes about 3 Dozen.
