Classic Almond Biscotti

Last week I ran a little event on my Facebook page called #YourChoiceMonday – on the 1st Monday of every month you can choose a dish that you would like to see on this blog. I’ll cook it & post a recipe. One of my followers requested for Almond Biscotti, so I baked them over the weekend and here’s the recipe! You too can be a part of this interactive event. Just head over to my Facebook page, ‘like’ it and you will be updated of forthcoming events.

Biscotti are these really crunchy Italian biscuits. In fact, biscotto (biscotti is plural) means ‘twice-baked’ and the recipe involves 2 stages of baking. Biscotti are very dry and hard. Hence they are served with a drink – dessert wines (in Italy) or coffee – into which they can be dunked.
This was the first time I was making these biscotti so I turned to Google to research some recipes. I found so many that it was really difficult to decide what to do. So I went to the trusted Joy of Baking web site where they have a classic recipe for this Italian biscuit. There’s a video available as well and I strongly recommend that you watch it since it’s a step by step demonstration of the recipe. I have adapted my recipe from this web site.

This recipe bakes 12-14 biscotti.
