Almond Biscotti

 

Almond biscotti always reminds me of my first aunt. I was first exposed to this at her home during Chinese New Year. She has a friend who make almond biscotti slices as CNY cookies and I just couldn’t stop eating them! I have looking for recipes and some require butter as ingredients but some don’t. And based on how I remember taste, it shouldn’t have butter in it so I decided to to try out this recipe from food.com.

It’s surprisingly easy to make, so feel free to try making it! Having a chef knife does help in cutting the log easily. If you notice, I cut the biscotti into few thickness variations and they taste good regardless of the thickness.
