1 ½ tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 eggs plus 2 egg yolks
6 Tbs melted butter
1 ½ tsp finely shredded orange peel
1 C chopped almonds
Preheat oven to 325◦ F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. (Better Homes and Gardens says to grease the cookie sheets, but I have found the parchment paper makes life much easier.) Combine dry ingredients. Place eggs and egg yolks in a well in the dry ingredients and combine. (I use my KitchenAid mixer for all the steps and it works wonders.) Add melted butter and orange peel. When dough forms a ball, add almonds and mix until combined.
A gift of biscotti coupled with a gourmet hot chocolate will always please the recipient!
