Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put flour in a bowl and form a well in the center. Add the sugar, 3 eggs, both egg yolks, baking powder, salt, and vanilla to the well.
  2. Mix with you hands and knead until dough forms, about 5-10 minutes.
  3. Knead in the almonds.
  4. Butter and flour two extra long baking sheets.
  5. Divide the dough into quarters. Shape each quarter in to long logs about 2 to 2.5 inches wide, spaced at least 2 inches apart. Flour your hands to make handling the dough easier (less sticky).
  6. Beat the remaining egg and brush it over each of the logs.
  7. Bake the logs for 35 minutes at 350°F.
  8. Reduce heat to 325F after removing the logs.
  9. Slice the logs into biscotti shapes. You can make diagonal slices to be "fancy." Each biscotti should be 3/4in-1in wide. Each log should make about one dozen biscotti, but this will vary.
  10. Lay the sliced biscotti on their sides on the baking sheets.
  11. Bake for 15 minutes more at 325°F.
