I used to munch this around the markets in Firenze and was given it by a friend.


  • 1 1/4 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon butter at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond essence
  • 3/4 cup whole unblanched almonds


Preheat oven to 150C. Combine sugar, flour , soda and salt then beat in the eggs, water, butter, vanilla and almond extracts until just blended. Stir in the almonds and turn out onto a lightly floured board and roll into 2 logs about 5cm in diameter.
bake on greased and floured baking tray until golden about one hour and allow to cool.
With a lovely sharp knife (global) but on an angle about 1 cm wide and place back on the tray and back about 25 mins until brown and crunchy. Let cool and store.

One thought on “Almond Biscotti

  1. Biscotti.
    Made biscotti for the first time today and had a complete meltdown! The biscotti, I mean- not me. I made the almond biscotti recipe from here and just looked at it in the oven- it has spread flat on the baking tray. Was very sticky when I mixed it and shaped it into a log so my guess is that the mixture was too wet.
    Any ideas?
