- 3 3/4 cups flour
- 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup almonds
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch salt
- Pinch saffron, optional
- 3 eggs
- 2 yolks
To finish the biscotti:
- 1 egg white, slightly beaten with a fork
- 1/4 cup sugar
- Serving suggestion: Vin Santo
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
In a mixing bowl fitted with a paddle attachment, stir together the dry ingredients.
Flour your hands slightly and roll the dough into log 2-inches in diameter. Place on a sheet pan and brush with the beaten egg white. Sprinkle with sugar and bake until golden brown, about 10-15 to minutes. Lower oven temperature to 325 degrees F.
Let cool for 5 minutes, then, cut on a bias with a serrated knife. Lay the slices out on a sheet pan and return them to the oven to dry out. Let cool, then store in an airtight container. Dip in Vin Santo.
