Vanilla Almond Biscotti
Vanilla Almond Biscotti
Starbucks Copycat Recipe
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup roughly chopped almonds
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small cubes
1 egg plus 1 egg white
3 tablespoons buttermilk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie tray with baking paper.
Put the first 6 ingredients into a large bowl. Cut the butter into the dry ingredients with a pastry blender or rub it in with your fingers (like when making pie dough or crumb topping). Set aside 2 tablespoons of the chopped almonds, and add the rest into the bowl with the flour mixture.
In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, egg white, buttermilk and vanilla extract. Pour this into the bowl with the flour mixture and stir together gently until the mixture comes together. You may need to use your hands to finish mixing it by lightly kneading the dough a few times.
Place the dough on the lined cookie tray and shape into a log roughly 10" long, 5" wide then flatten it slightly to 1" thick. Sprinkle on the reserved chopped almonds and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown on top. Let it cool on a wire rack until it's cool enough to handle. Turn the oven down to 325 degrees.
Slice the loaf across its width using a sharp knife or a serrated bread knife, into 3/4" thick slices. Place the biscotti cut side down back onto the cookie tray. Bake them again for 10 minutes, then flip them over and bake for a further 10 minutes. Remove them to a wire rack and let them dry out overnight in a dry place.
