Almond Biscotti

Wow, I've been too busy. I don't even know where the time is going, but I have several recipes with pictures waiting to be posted. I really need to get around to updating this blog more often - this Tuesdays only thing isn't enough for me. Anyways, back to this post: this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was almond biscotti, selected by Canela & Comino.

Almonds are always delicious, in my opinion. My almond extract is almost gone because I keep adding it into things, and I tend to have a stash of almonds somewhere in the cupboard at all times. These biscuits are packed with almond flavor, and have just the right amount of sweetness. The texture is perfect, with a lightly crisp outside and a soft chewy interior.

I ended up slicing these on a 45ยบ angle to get longer strips - the cuts looked a little too small without doing this. I also added just a few extra almonds (1 cup instead of 3/4 cup) to make sure every bite had a little crunch.

They look wonderful, so I hope you liked them? I'm going to guess so if you like almonds so much - there was a lot of almond flavor in these.
