Almond Biscotti

I did not really have a good experience with biscotti as the first piece that I tried almost broke my teeth. Later then I found out that it is meant to be dunk into the coffee. But I still cannot appreciate this cookie until I tried the thinly sliced version. It is so addictive. Nutty and eggy.

I decided to make it at home as this type of cookie comes with a huge price tag. I tried this recipe from Food-4Tots since I have all the ingredients on hand.

The steps are easy, only thing to take note of is to flour your work surface generously. After the first bake, we have to slice the log into 0.3cm slices. Apart from a few breakages at the ends, most of them stayed intact. :p This thickness produced very crispy cookies. Love this recipe to the max. Just to take note, one recipe only yield 52 slices, quite a small batch, insufficient to satisfy my appetite.
