Lemon Almond Biscotti

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon peel (a little more only tastes better)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla (or almond extract or amaretto)
  • 1/2 cup blanched almonds

Stir together flour, baking powder and set aside.

Beat butter and sugar until blended.  Beat in eggs and vanilla.  Add flour mixture and mix in thoroughly.  Stir in almonds.  Divide dough in half and shape each half into a long loaf.  Place each loaf on baking pan 3 inches apart.  Flatten to about 1/2 inch.  Bake at 350 deg until firm to touch (about 15-18 min).  Remove from oven cut loaves into slices and arrange pieces cut side up on baking sheet.  Return to oven and bake for another 10 minutes or so, until pieces start to turn golden brown and the house smells divine.
