 Method of Production:

  1. Blend dry ingredients together with almonds.
  2. In a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream butter and sugar together.
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix on speed 4 until combined, approximately 2 minutes.
  4. Add the dry ingredients. Mix on speed 2 until just incorporated, approximately 1 minute.
  5. Divide dough into 450g portions. On parchment-lined baking sheets, form dough into a 2-inch wide, 3/4-inch tall logs. Brush with liquid egg white.
  6. Bake at 350° F for 20 minutes. Rotate halfway through baking, until dough is firm, but gives slightly when pressed.
  7. Let cool on a wire rack for 5-10 minutes. Lower the oven temperature to 325° F.
  8. With a serrated knife, cut logs into 1/4-inch slices on the diagonal and arrange cut-side down on parchment-lined baking sheets.
  9. Bake at 325° F for 10 minutes, rotating halfway through baking and flipping biscotti over. Biscotti should be crisp when done.

 Packaging/Serving:
