Since discovering during my holiday baking last year that, 1) I actually do like biscotti, and 2) it’s really fun and easy to make, I have been experimenting with various flavors and recipes. Almond biscotti seems to be the “classic” flavor, so I decided to give it a try this time around. I must say, it tasted fantastic! The almond extract provides a delicious sweetness and and sliced almonds add to the texture. I only wish that they had risen a bit more, but I think I may have slightly underbaked them. I attribute this to being in someone else’s kitchen, and I definitely look forward to making this again on my own turf. Biscotti always make a wonderful gift for coffee or tea drinkers, and my mother-in-law certainly enjoyed the batch I brought over to her.
