Orange-Walnut Biscotti Recipes

Preheat oven to 300. Makes 1 lb. 4 oz. dough, approx. 25 cookies

Ingredients

• 2 cups all purpose flour
• 1 cup sugar
• 1-½ tsp. baking soda
• ¼ tsp. salt
• 2 large whole eggs, plus 1 large egg yolk
• 1 tsp. vanilla
• 1 Tblsp. grated fresh orange peel (zest)
• 1-½ cups chopped walnuts

Directions

1. In mixer bowl place flour, sugar, baking soda and salt. In small bowl mix eggs, yolk, vanilla and zest.

2. With paddle attachment, blend flour mixture, then add egg mixture. As soon as it begins to ball up, add
    walnuts. Mix just until dough forms. Turn out to floured board. If the dough is too dry add a tablespoon of
   cold water. Knead once or twice to form a cohesive dough. Divide into two pieces and form logs 12 inches
   long by 2 inches wide.

3. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly oiled. Flatten them slightly with your hand.
    Bake for 45-50 min until firm. Cool on rack for 10 min. Cut on diagonal about 3/4 inch wide, lay on cut side
    and bake for 7 minutes. Turn each cookie over and bake an additional 7 minutes. Cool completely and store.


Altitude Adjustment: At altitudes over 5000 ft. decrease baking soda in both recipes to 1 tsp., and decrease sugar
                                       to 3/4 cup.
