  • 5 cups all purpose flour
  • 5 teaspoons baking powder
  • 6 eggs beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp anise
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl whisk together the flour and baking powder.
  • In another large bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar, vegetable oil, anise, and vanilla extract.
  • Slowly stir the flour mixture into the egg and sugar mixture until just combined.  Then stir in the almonds.  The dough will be very sticky.
  • Form 1 1/2 inch by 5 inch long logs with the dough.  Place more than 2 inches apart on the parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the dough is golden brown.
  • While hot, slice the biscotti diagonally, creating 1 inch thick slices.  Allow to cool completely before packing away.  Or enjoy right away with coffee.
