This recipe came from Italy when my great grandmother immigrated to the USA from Italy. This is her original biscotti recipe, easy, inexpensive, it and tastes utterly fantastic.

About 10 years ago we sold these biscotti logs and paid for a trip to Brazil for my mother. How's that for "frugal living"? You only need to bake this recipe once, not twice.


  • 4 eggs
  • 1 stick of margarine
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1 package of slivered almonds
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tsp. baking powder
  • 4 cups flour (add flour slowly, until smooth, not sticky)


Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees F.

Mix sugar, eggs, vanilla, and soft margarine first. Add salt and baking powder to the mixture. Next, add flour and mix well. Add almonds.


Roll into a log shape and bake on a prepared baking sheet. Try to flatten out the log before baking, so that the center is not too high. Bake for about 20 minutes.

May be frozen to use later.

Prep Time: 15 Minutes

  • 1/2 cup margarine or butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts


Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in chocolate and walnuts. Shape dough into 2 slightly flattened logs. Place 2 inches apart on greased and floured cookie sheet. Bake 25 minutes or until lightly browned.


Place on cutting board, and cool 5 minutes. Using serrated knife, cut each log into diagonal slices about 3/4 inch thick. Place slices upright on cookie sheet 1/2 inch apart. Bake 10 minutes or until slightly dry. Cool on wire racks.

I'm looking for a traditional almond biscotti recipe that is light and crunchy but not a "lite" recipe.

Thanks for sharing ;)

Almond Biscotti

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 1/3 cup flour


1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. lemon zest
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chopped, slivered almonds
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
2 tsp. lemon juice

Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Form batter into a long log (or 2 smaller logs). Turn oven down to 325 degrees. Bake 25 to 30 minutes. Cool about 10 - 15 minutes. Slice loaf into 1/2 inch slices with a serrated knife. Turn slices on their sides. Turn oven heat down to 275 degrees and bake biscotti about 20 - 25 minutes. more. These are delicious. I make them often.
