Pour a cup of coffee and indulge! Crisp, crunchy biscotti cookies are perfect for dunking. Hazelnuts and almonds make my favorite version even better. —Johnna Johnson, Scottsdale, Arizona

  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup chopped hazelnuts, toasted
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, beat eggs, sugar and extracts until well-blended. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually stir into egg mixture. Stir in nuts (mixture will be stiff).
  2. Divide dough in half. Using lightly floured hands, shape each portion into a 9x2-in. rectangle on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes.
  3. Cool on pans on wire racks until firm. Reduce oven setting to 325°. Transfer baked rectangles to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut diagonally into 3/4-in. slices. Place on baking sheets, cut side down.
  4. Bake until lightly browned, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
