Biscotti - Powell
Author/Submitted by: Elizabeth Powell
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.
