Yeeees, it is quite obvious and clear that I have days off for the holidays so I’m cramming everything I wasn’t able to do baking wise in these two-three days.
I made these as a gift for a friend of mine, it’s just a shame I wasn’t able to find or had the sufficient time rather to pick up some Vin Santo to have them with. We will make due without not a problem ;).
280 gr sugar
pinch of salt
1 tsp baking powder
100 gr butter melted
250 gr almonds
500 gr plain flour
4 eggs + 1 yolk
1 egg for coating
Turn oven on 190°. Place almonds in a tray and put them in the oven to roast for 3-5mins then let cool aside.
In a bowl beat 4 eggs and a yolk with the sugar until fluffy and pale. Add the melted butter followed by the flour and baking powder. Once it’s all combined equally, add the almonds, sprinkle some flour on a counter top and knead the dough into a ball.
Divide the ball into three or two balls, depending on how big you want the biscotti to be.
Put in the oven for 20 mins or til golden. Take them out, cool for a couple of minutes and cut them diagonally to be at least 1cm thick.
Place the biscotti face up one next to the other on the tray and let bake for another 10-15 minutes at 170° in order to have that golden colour in the inside also.
They look so yummy don’t they 🙂
Ciao for now! xox
