Cantucci Baresi or Almond Biscotti... great with coffee or tea or after dinner dipped  in Vin Santo or any other sweet wine!

They are also great dipped in coffee or a cappuccino!

  • 1 Lb Flour
  • 1/2 Lb Sugar
  • 4 + 1 Eggs
  • Zest of two lemons
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • Pre-heat the oven at 350F.
  • Cut the almonds in half.
  • In a large bowl mix 4 eggs and all the other ingredients.
  • Roll the dough into 3 logs of about 1 1/2" thick and place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper.
  • Beat the remaining egg into an egg wash and with a brush spread it over the logs.

Make sure to separate the pieces a bit before you put them back in the oven for round 2, makes them have a bit more of a crunch! Came out very tasty - thanks!

Really nice crunchy biscuites.
I just found that the dough was a bit too sticky. It it the way it is supposed to be or should I add some more flour?

so so delicious-easy to make. I drizzled Baileys icing[ baileys & icing sugar mixed]and melted nutella across each cookie-very pretty.
