Ingredients

4 ounces almonds
blanched
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
granulated
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
*
3 large eggs

Directions

Preheat oven to 350℉ (180℃). Spread almonds on a baking sheet and toast them in oven until lightly golden. Let cool. Coarsely chop half the nuts. Butter 2 large baking sheets.

Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Beat in eggs, then whole and chopped nuts. Mix to obtain a firm dough. Knead briefly, then divide dough into 4 pieces.

On a floured work surface, roll each piece under your hands into a cylinder 15 inches long and about 1½ inches in diameter.

Place 2 rolls, well separated, on each baking sheet and bake 15 to 20 minutes, until very lightly browned and firm to the touch.

With a spatula, carefully transfer the rolls to a cutting board and slice each one diagonally into cookies about ½-inch thick. Set wire racks on the baking sheets and lay out the biscotti on them.

Return them to the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until very firm and crisp. Cool on the racks, then transfer them to a tin for long keeping.

Try adding 1½-to-2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to this recipe for a nice variation.
