Almond and Lemon Biscotti

    1 hour 35 minutes

    A dash of Sambuca or a similar anise liqueur makes these biscotti extra special. Normally biscotti are baked twice, in this recipe they are just dried in the oven.

    1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C. Grease a baking tray and dust with flour then shake off the excess flour.
    2. In a bowl, mix the flour, sugar, eggs, zest, liqueur and rum. Beat well with a wooden spoon until combined.
    3. Stir in the almonds and baking powder. Shape the dough into two long logs. Place on the baking tray with a few cm between them (they will spread). Bake 1 hour. Let cool 20 minutes.
    4. With a bread knife, cut the logs into slices about 2-3cm thick. Lay the slices on the baking tray and put in the still warm oven for 10 minutes to dry out.
