Grandma Adamo’s Biscotti

Grandmas never run out of hugs or cookies.   ~ Author Unknown

This biscotti recipe was passed on to me by my faithful friend, Angela Gober. It is one of the cookies she grew up on and treasures from her Sicilian Grandma Mary Adamo’s kitchen. It has long been a favorite of ours and one of our most requested recipes. These biscotti are great made just as the recipe reads or can easily be adapted to create other delicious variations.

4 cups flour
1 1/2 cup sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
4 eggs
2 teaspoons baking powder
3 teaspoons almond extract
1 cup slivered almonds
good quality semi-sweet chocolate chips

Mix oil, sugar, and eggs with an electric mixer. Add flour, baking powder, and almond extract. Mix well and then stir in slivered almonds. Separate dough into 4 pieces and put 2 long rows on each cookie sheet. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from the oven and slice each biscotti loaf diagonally, placing the cookies on their sides and returning them to the oven for 10 to 15 minutes more or until lightly browned.

If desired: Dip each cookie in melted chocolate.
