Lemon Olive Oil & Almond Biscotti

Posted by

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Lemon Olive Oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups whole almonds, toasted
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract


Directions
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.


In a medium bowl, beat together the olive oil, eggs, sugar and almond extract until well blended. Combine flour and baking powder, stir into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough. Divide dough into two pieces. Form each piece into a roll as long as your cookie sheet. Place roll onto the prepared cookie sheet, and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.


Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheet to cool on a wire rack. When the cookies are cool enough to handle, slice each one crosswise into 1/2 inch slices. Place the slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet. Bake for an additional 6 to 10 minutes on each side. Slices should be lightly toasted.
