Title: Anise biscotti #1
Yield: 36 Servings
3/4 c Whole; unblanched almonds
1/4 lb Butter
3/4 c Sugar
2 1/4 c Flour
1 1/2 ts Baking powder
1/4 ts Salt
2 -(up to)
3 ts Crushed anise seeds
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Toast the almonds until golden, then chop by hand into 1/4 inch
chunks. *Reduce oven heat to *325* degrees* Cream the butter until
light, add the sugar and beat till smooth and creamy. Beat in eggs
until the mixture is smooth. Add the (orange, anise, lemon) specific
ingredients. Sift in the flour, baking powder and salt, beat until
just mixed. Stir in the almonds. On a floured board, divide the dough
in half and roll each half into a long roll about 1-1/2 inches in
diameter and about 10 inches long.
Set the rolls on a baking sheet at least 3 inches apart, bake in the
top third of the oven (*325*) for about 25 minutes, or until they are
set and lightly browned on top. Cool the rolls for 5 minutes or so,
then slice diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices. Lay the slices flat
on the baking sheet and return to the oven for another 10 minutes.
Turn the slices over and bake for another 10 minutes. Cool on a rack,
and keep in a tightly covered tin - they keep for months.
