Almond flour biscotti are simple but so special with a delicate almond taste. This recipe calls for only 9 ingredients, which makes 20 elegant biscotti which can be a great holiday gift to the dear ones.
Biscotti are one of the most popular cookies, ideal for dunking into a tea or coffee. We have an interesting version of these traditional Italian cookies made with almond flour which makes them nutty, light and completely gluten-free.
The dough is made in minutes, you just need to leave more time for baking biscotti, as they are baked twice - one as a log and second time sliced. Biscotti are ideal for making ahead as they keep well for weeks in the cookie jar. We suggest you to make these cookies, wrap them nicely and give someone special as a holiday gift.
Making these amazing biscotti is so simple, just leave some time for baking. The recipe start with combining almond flour, corn starch baking powder and salt in one bowl.
In another bowl stir together egg, demerara sugar, melted butter and Amaretto. Don't forget to grate some orange zest to kick the flavour. Once combined pour this into the dry ingredients and stir until you get a soft compact dough. Shape the dough into flatten log and bake until lightly brown. Cool the log completely, cut into slices, lay on the baking tray and bake again until biscotti become crunchy and dry.
While these are perfect when made plain, sometimes you may want to do something different. In this case, consider adding all kinds of different flavouring such as dark chocolate chips or chunks, vanilla extract or paste, chopped dried fruits or nuts or a few tablespoons of some herb liqueur. You can also melt dark chocolate and then dip each biscotti into it, leave to set and serve.
Almond flour is a great addition to baked goods, making them extra tasty and giving light texture. This gluten-free nut flour, is a rich in vitamins and full of proteins.
When choosing almond flour, buy finely ground flour with light yellow colour. This flour can be bought from organic food stores or even online. We love to bake with almond flour and here are a few great recipes to try: chocolate almond flour muffins, gluten-free almond flour cookies and soft amaretti cookies.
Almond flour is made by grinding blanched almonds into a fine flour. Look for a super finely ground almond flour because there are many kind of almond flours in the shops and not all of them are good. If you can't find almond flour in your store, order it easily online.
