Recap: Almond Biscotti

Another part of the teacher gift I made were these TWD Almond biscotti by Dorie Greenspan. I haven't made them since, but I sure remembered how much we all loved them here.

My original idea was to make them with some dark chocolate pieces and dried cherries and almonds. Well I sort of goofed on the bake time, they went over 15 minutes and the cherries became over baked(you know that kinda burnt chewiness, ick!) so I tossed those.

I decided not to mess with a good thing and made them as is again. They came out perfecto! This time I baked them one on each tray (unlike before, where I put 2 on a tray), and I piled the dough taller, and they didn't seem to flatten out as much this time either. Yay!

When they were done and cooled, I dipped them in semi and milk chocolate and set them to cool in the fridge for a bit. Then they were ready for the cute cookie box I found.
Even though these are twice baked, they are still a little soft, which I really like. I used all vanilla extract and left the almond extract out (not a fan). Be sure to check out the recipe here, I'm sure you'll love them too!
