Title: Basic biscotti - orange, anise, and lemon
Yield: 1 Servings
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Basic Ingredients for *any* of the recipes* 3/4 cup whole & unblanched
almonds 1/4 pound butter 3/4 cup sugar 2 eggs 2 1/4 cup flour 1 1/2
tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt
For Orange Biscotti Zest from 1 orange, grated or minced 2 Tbls.
orange liqueur, or 1 Tbls. orange extract 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
For Anise Biscotti 2 - 3 tsp. crushed anise seeds
For Lemon Biscotti Zest from 1 lemon, grated or minced 1 Tbls. lemon
extract, or 1 Tbls. lemon juice Procedures for all recipes 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 & beat till smooth & creamy. Beat in eggs until the mixture is
smooth. Add the (orange, anise, lemon) specific ingredients. Sift in
the flour, baking powder & salt, beat until just mixed. Stir in the
almonds. On a floured board, divide the dough in half & roll each
half into a long roll about 1 1/2 inches in diameter & 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 & 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 & return to the oven for another
10 minutes. Turn the slices over & bake for another 10 minutes. Cool
on a rack, and keep in a tightly covered tin - they keep for months.
