The recipe was for hazelnut biscotti originally, but I can't stand hazelnuts, and it is all about me. So almond it is!
This recipe came together very easily. The boy and I made the dough pretty quickly. I shaped the logs using my favorite trick of putting plastic bags on my hands. It works well. He measured with our food safe ruler. (Yes, I am that anal. I measure) We used two baking sheets, which was a really good thing. Our 2 1/2" wide logs of dough turned into about 8" of biscotti.
I liked them after the first bake. You know, you have to taste. I really liked them after the second bake. I cut the big logs in half. That way I got more cookies, and really, smaller cookies have fewer calories. Unless you eat more of them. Which I would never do. Really.
I'd certainly make this again. This is one of the cookies I'm sending off as a Baking Gal. My items are ready to go. Now if the post office would just get me those boxes....
Here is the whole rack of them cooling. I love the way the chocolate chips and almonds show up against the cookie.
And a close up of sorts. I really need to get a better camera. Or better photography skills. It could go either way.
I'm excited to see what the Cookie Carnival will bring next month. Woo hoo!
