Number of Servings: 70


    2.5 cups brown sugar
    1.5 cups all purpose flour
    1.5 cups white whole wheat flour
    1.25 cups almond flour
    2 tsp baking powder
    1 tsp salt

    flour to roll out

    2 large eggs
    2 tsp almond extract
    2 tbsp amaretto
    almond milk to create a soft dough


These are dead simple, but take a little time.

Combine all the dry ingredients and stir together. Add the wet ingredients and mix (I use a stand mixer), trickling in the almond milk last to get a dough about the texture of Play-Dog or warm Plasticine.

Divide into eights.

With floured hands (I use latex gloves: this stuff is sticky), on a floured surface, roll it into snakes about a half inch thick. Pinch each snake into four-inch-long "bones" (I measure with the palm of my hand to get them approximately the same length) and squeeze the ends a little to make them look a little more femurlike.

Line them up on cookie sheets (you can put them quite close together, although not touching) and let them sit uncovered in a cool place or the refrigerator for about eight hours, or overnight. Bake in a preheated 300-degree oven for 20-30 minutes, depending on whether you want them softer, or crunchy like biscotti (like bones!).

When they are cool, you can toss them in non-melting powdered sugar, if you like--but they are delicious plain.
