3 eggs
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 tablespoons anise seeds
3 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chopped almonds (can substitute with Walnuts)
Cream butter, sugar and 1 tablespoon anise seed.
Add eggs and vanilla.
Combine flour, baking powder and 1 tablespoon Anise seed.
Add to cream mixture.
Add nuts, mix in, and form dough into 2 or 3 long thin rolls.
Place rolls on a ungreased baking pan or cookie sheet and bake cookie rolls at 350 degrees 15-20 minutes , or till light brown.
Remove from oven and cut diagonally into 1/2-3/4 inch slices.
Put back in oven and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or till Biscotti is lightly toasted.
You want the biscoti to dry slightly.
It will look somewhat like a elongated piece of french bread, except smaller.
