Lemon Almond Biscotti

Well, we will spoil you just a little bit with our last recipe. Though this is a healthy desert, it is still very sweet and enjoyable. This Italian treat is great with coffee and is quite simple to make at home.

1 cup (250 ml) all-purpose flour
1 cup (80 ml) sugar
1 cup (80 ml) almonds
1 tablespoon (15 ml) grated lemon
½ tablespoon (8 ml) baking powder
1 tablespoon (45 ml) vegetable olive oil
1 egg white
½ teaspoon (3 ml) vanilla

Preheat the oven to 165ยบ C. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, grinded almonds, lemon, and baking powder. In a separate bowl, mix the oil, egg, and vanilla. Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir well. The batter should be sticky. Roll the dough into a log about 1 foot long and place on a greased and floured cookie sheet. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from the oven, and allow it to cool for 5 minutes. Cut the biscotti into ¾-inch slices and lay the pieces on their sides on the baking sheet. Bake for 10 minutes more. Let it cool and Serve.
