Italian biscotti: Dessert
Prep time:35 minutes
2 beaten eggs
1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
1 chopped almonds or walnuts
1 grated orange peel
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Mix well, kneading dough so it is compact (no holes). Form batter into two long rolls, about 2-4” in diameter.
Bake rolls at 350 degrees on ungreased cookie sheet (insulated type works best) for 20 minutes. Take out. Let cool slightly
. Remove rolls carefully to cutting surface and slice diagonally ½”” thick. Lay pieces cut side down on cookie sheets and bake for additional 15 minutes (lightly browned.)
OPTIONAL: Dip one end of cooled cookies in melted chocolate. Yum!
