2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
1 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon orange zest
freshly grated
1 ½ cups almonds
whole, toasted lightly & coarse, chopped
1 large eggs
1 teaspoon water
beaten with egg


In the bowl of an electric mixer, fitted with a paddle attachment, blend the flour, the sugar, the baking soda and the salt until combined well.

In a small bowl whisk together the whole eggs, the yolk, the vanilla and the zest, add the mixture to the flour mixture, beating until a dough is formed and stir in the almonds.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface, knead it several times and halve it.

Working on a large buttered and floured baking sheet, with floured hands form each piece of dough into a flattish log 12 inches long and 2 inches wide, arrange the logs at least 3 inches apart on the sheet, and brush them with the egg wash.

Bake the logs in the middle of a preheated 300℉ (150℃) oven for 50 minutes and them cool on the baking rack for 10 minutes.

On a cutting board, cut the logs crosswise on the diagonal into ½ inch thick slices, arrange the biscotti, cut sides down, on the baking sheet and bake them, in the 300℉ (150℃) oven for 15 minutes on each side.

Note: it may take a bit longer in the oven to dry the biscotti.

Transfer the biscotti to racks to cool and store them in airtight containers.
