Almond Biscotti

Again from Happy Home Baking, I found this super cool recipe on how to bake Almond Biscotti! :) I recognized this pastry not from any other food blog or bakeries or café, I just happened to watch in Forensic Heroes 2 where Ivan (Kevin Cheng) personally baked those tasty biscuits for Bell (Charmaine Sheh). I love TVB so much, and those two actors/actresses are my favorite! Kevin is super handsome I wish I have a boyfriend who looks like him! Lol! I mean, he really has the perfect appearance and in all dramas he acted, there are always parts where he shows his romantic side!! And Charmaine, she is super stunning, I first watched her in this drama called Return of the Cuckoo and she was super cute with her short hair back then! But now, she's all grown up, so pretty and so hot! :D


Look how sweet Kevin is, telling Charmaine that biscotti goes very well with coffee. Indeed it does taste super nice!! :D


Awwww look at his cute face!! Enjoying biscottis under the yellow yolk! I want!! :P


Ok ok back to our recipe now! :P I thought baking this would be difficult just because of the fact that this biscuit is italian! (I always imagined how elegant italian pastries are!) But no! It was so easy for me and I think you guys can try this too!! :)

Ingredients

3 eggs
250g of plain flour
150g of sugar
1/2 tablespoon of baking powder
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of almond

1. Preheat oven to 160°.
2. Mix flour, almond, sugar, and baking powder into a bowl.
3. Whisk the eggs with the vanilla extract and add into the bowl of flour.
4. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly.
5. Line a parchment paper on the pan and scoop half of the mixture and place it on top of the pan. Spread them out properly.
6. Bake for 35 minutes, remove them out to let cool.
7. Cut the log into slices.
8. Place the slices on the baking sheet and heat in the oven for around 20 minutes.
9. Let cool, and store into a container.


Flour, sugar, almond. I think it is better not to mix the almond together with the flour mixture because it will be difficult when you add the egg. So, add the egg and mix the mixture with a spatula, and then only add the almond.


Eggs


Mix mix!!


Spread on the parchment paper.


Take out, let cool.


Sliced!


Voilà!! Aren't they beautiful?? :D


Dip the biscotti into a cup of Bee Kopi!! It's very delicious!! :D

Voilà!! You see how easy it is to make biscotti?? And it's tasty too!! I think I will be baking this a lot of times because I really love the smell of the biscuit when I open the jar, and I love the taste of the dipped biscotti!! Mom would love to taste some because Mom loves to have some Hupseng cream crackers with Bee Kopi for tea! When I'm back to Malaysia next year I'll definitely bake some for Mom and for Dad as well! And for the rest of the family!! And also will bake some doggie cookies for Ryan n Dolly!! Yay I can't wait!! :D

Have fun baking!! ^^
