Almond Biscotti

3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 cups plain flour (260 grams)
150 gms sugar
1 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
150 gms almonds

Roast the whole almonds (blanched or otherwise) & let them cool.
Preheat oven at 300 F (150 degree C)
Mix all the dry ingredients (excluding almonds) with an electric mixer (or a hand mixer) or sieve them together a couple of times.
Mix eggs with the extracts & beat a little.
Slowly add the egg mixture to the flour & continue mixing with an electric mixer (or a hand mixer) When the dough forms add the roasted almonds.
On a lightly floured surface form a log of the mixture & then place it on a baking tray.
Bake for 30-40 mins in the oven.
After taking out let it cool for 10 mins & then cut it with a sharp knife into thin slices.
Bake the slices on one side for 10 mins again then turn on the other side for baking another 10 mins.
Cool & Store. (Lasts for a good few days in an airtight container.)
The only changes I have made is that since I did not have almond extract I used vanilla essence.
Also I could not knead the dough as the recipe needed as my dough was a sticky mess I just transferred it to the baking tray I had greased and lined with flour.
I will post the pictures when I next make it as Akanksha has finished the last slice.
