It wouldn't seem like Christmas without a batch of almond biscotti. Biscotti has become just as much of a Davis tradition as gingerbread house decorating and seven fish dinner for Christmas Eve.
Dipping an ordinary almond biscotti in dark chocolate just seems to dress it up perfectly for the holidays.
Adding biscotti to your Christmas menu is easier than you think. The key is to make it well in advance and tuck it away in your freezer so that you don't have to worry about it when the busy holiday season is up on us. (Probably should have started on my biscotti last month.)
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead until dough comes together. Divide in half. (I doubled the recipe so I divided mine into quarters.)
Cool 10 minutes. Slice into 1/2 inch slices.
Bake 9 minutes. Turn. Bake 9 more minutes.
Dip biscotti into chocolate and sprinkle with almonds.
Who wouldn't love a little bag of these for Christmas? I bet a know a few teachers, neighbors and grandparents who would love to get some of these for Christmas. (And of course - I would too.)
