Starbucks Almond Biscotti

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder

1 cup chopped or slivered almonds, toasted in a 350 degree oven until fragrant and cooled

3 large eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix flour, sugar, nuts, baking powder, and pinch of salt in one bowl.

In another bowl, whisk eggs and extracts until well beaten.

Add egg mixture to flour mixture and beat just until combined. Mixture will be sticky and thick like regular cookie dough.

Spray a cookie sheet with Pam. Divide dough into two parts and transfer to cookie sheet. With floured hands, shape into 8" long, 1/2" high loaves. Sprinkle with a bit more granulated sugar.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until pale golden, and center of loaf is firm when touched. Remove from cookie sheet and cool.

Place on cutting board and cut into 1/2 thick slices on the diagonal. Arrange cookies, cut side down, on the same sheet. Bake another 12-18 minutes, until cookies are turning golden but are still a bit soft.

Cool and store in an airtight container.

Makes about 2 dozen biscotti.
