Orange Almond Biscotti

Submitted by: DKOUNTZ81

Introduction

Light, Crunchy and Wonderful with Coffee Light, Crunchy and Wonderful with Coffee
Number of Servings: 40

Ingredients

    2 cups White Flour
    1 tsp Baking Powder
    1/8 tsp Salt
    3/4 cup Granulated Sugar
    3 Large Eggs
    1 tbsp Fresh Orange Zest
    1 tsp Vanilla Extract
    1 cup Almonds, whole, toasted and roughly chopped

Directions

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. (a stand mixer works well for this)
In another bowl beat eggs with vanilla and orange zest.
Add egg mixture to the flour mixture with mixer on low speed. Add almonds as dough comes together.
With floured hands divide dough in half. On a lightly floured surface roll each half of dough into a log about 10 inches long and 2 inches wide. Transfer logs to the prepared baking sheet, spacing the logs about 3 inches apart.
Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until firm to the touch (logs will spread during baking).
Remove from oven and let cool on a wire rack for about 10 minutes.
Remove from pan and slice 1/2in thick using a serrated knife. Place cookies cut side down on baking sheet.
Bake 20 minutes in slow oven turning over once half way through.

Store in an airtight container, I'd tell you how long they keep for, but they've never lasted longer than about a week!

Makes about 40 cookies.

    It was fun making these~
    Also, since I did not have any orange zest, I used 2 teaspoons of orange juice. I used 1 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 cup of white flour. Instead of 1 cup of almonds, I put half a cup of almonds and half a cup of raisins. Also, I just used 2 eggs and 1 egg white.

    These are delicious! Crunchy, fragrant, yummy, everything you want in a biscotti... except the fat. These are so relatively economical... why are they so expensive in the stores? Make them, you'll like these. - 5/21/09

  • I liked these. My first attempt at making Biscotti. I used 1 T grated orange peel and must have cut mine too big, I only got about 20. Eating one now and it would be easier if they were cut thinner...know that for next time! - 1/28/13

  • For me the dough was slightly to crumbly (possibly my eggs were on the small side) so I just added a tiny bit of water to get the dough to the right texture. Both my hubby and I think these are absolutely divine! - 5/21/12

  • The biscotti were yummy. I put less than the recommended sugar and still found them a tad too sweet for my palate. Easy to make. Good for a small crowd coming round for afternoon tea. Thanks for sharing. - 4/14/12

    I really want to try this recipe but I'm not sure what temp to bake at or what a "slow oven" means. - 11/21/11

  • These smell and taste so good. They make a wonderful breakfast treat or a good alternative to more sinful choices. - 5/9/11

  • I modified this a little too.
    I used one tablespoon of grated orange rind.
    Once they were cut and cooled, I drizzled some unsweetened chocolate (melted with a dab of butter and almond extract.) - 4/2/11
