Wanna make some big-ass biscotti? This twice-baked biscuit is an awesome accompaniment to your favorite hot beverage.
Biscotti is a twice-baked sweet biscuit that goes great with a hot cup of coffee or tea--it's an easy way to start the day feeling like a real fancy-pants dude or dudette, especially if you're drinking your hot beverage out of a tiny cup with a tiny spoon to stir in your milk and a cloth napkin to wipe your very satisfied mouth. And there is zero butter or oil in this recipe, just a little rummy goodness.
Biscotti Recipe Ingredients:
1 cup ALMOND SLICES
2 cups all-purpose FLOUR
3/4 cup SUGAR
1 teaspoon BAKING POWDER
1/8 teaspoon SALT
3 large EGGS
2 tsp VANILLA EXTRACT
1 tsp ALMOND EXTRACT
2 Tbsp RUM
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Toast almond slices--watch them, it only takes about 2 minutes to toast, just want a few to begin turning.
Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt then mix and set aside.
Whisk the eggs, rum and extracts until blended well.
Add the dry ingredients, including nuts, and mix until combined.
Dough will be sticky at this point.
Scrape the dough out onto a parchment lined sheet pan.
Quickly shape with wooden spoon into a long flat loaf.
Bake about 30 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Remove from the oven and cool 10-15 minutes.
Lower oven heat to 300 degrees F.
Slice loaf into 1/2" to 1" wide slices.
Lay the slices cut side down on the baking sheet and bake another 15-20 minutes.
Turn the slices over and bake 15 minutes more, or until the cookies are a light golden brown.
Cool the biscotti on a rack.
Cool completely before storing.
And that's it, man. Serve them up with some coffee or hot tea and you'll feel
like a real fancy-pants Italian lawyer.
