Cook:

Ingredients
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons soft unsalted butter
  • 3 cups whole almonds (skin on)
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 3 tablespoons pure vanilla
  • 1 beaten egg mixed with 1 tablespoon water, for egg wash
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Put brown sugar, white sugar, flour, cinnamon, baking powder, butter, and almonds in a large mixing bowl. With mixer on low speed, add beaten eggs and vanilla. Mix just until dough holds together.

  • Put dough on a floured surface. Cut in half. Roll each piece into a log. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheet. Flatten each log slightly with palm of the hand. Lightly brush the top of each log with egg wash.

  • Bake for 25 minutes or until firm to touch. Remove from oven. Cut dough diagonally into biscotti. For harder biscotti, return to 300 degree F oven until sufficiently dry.
