4  cups  flour
1 1/2  cups  sugar
1/2  teaspoon  salt
2  teaspoons  baking powder
1/3  cup  butter
1/4  cup  lard
4  whole  eggs

Sift together flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. Cut butter and lard into mixture. Beat eggs slightly and beat in vanilla and almond extracts. Quickly stir egg mixture, anise seed, and almonds into dry ingredients. Turn out on a floured board and knead until dough is no longer sticky. Divide dough into 6-8 pieces. Roll with hands into long rolls. Place rolls on greased baking pans and flatten slightly with hands. Bake at 325 degrees for 25-30 minutes. Slice each roll diagonally into 3/4 inch pieces. Return to baking pan, cut side up, and bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. Turn biscotti over and bake 5 minutes more.
