Slivered almonds 1 cup


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate large bowl, beat the eggs, vanilla extract, and almond extract together until well combined.
  4. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients until a thick dough forms.
  5. Mix in the slivered almonds until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  6. Divide the dough in half and shape each half into a flat log, about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide.
  7. Place the logs onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them about 3 inches apart.
  8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the logs are lightly golden and firm to the touch.
  9. Remove the logs from the oven and allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes.
  10. Use a serrated knife to cut the logs into slices, about 1/2 inch thick.
  11. Arrange the slices onto the baking sheet, cut side down, and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes, or until they are lightly golden and crispy.
  12. Allow the biscotti to cool completely on a wire rack before serving or storing.


  • For a sweeter biscotti, you can add 1/2 cup of dried cranberries or chocolate chips to the dough.
  • Store the biscotti in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 weeks.
