  • 3 cups all-purpose flour spooned and leveled (375 grams)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (200 grams)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt or table salt
  • ½ cup vegetable oil or other neutral oil (120 ml)
  • 3 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 ½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon almond extract
  • 1 cup slivered almonds (120 grams)


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C) and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl whisk together the oil, eggs, vanilla and almond extract.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined. Use your hands to form a dough if it’s easier.
  • Mix in the slivered almonds.
  • Form 3 logs of dough, about 3 or 4-inches wide by 8-inches long; you can put two logs on one cookie sheet and one log on the second cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 23 to 26 minutes or until the tops are set and the edges are lightly browned.
  • Remove from the oven and carefully slice each log into roughly 1-inch slices diagonally.
  • Place slices cut side up, at least 1 inch apart, on the baking sheets. Bake for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, flip each sliced biscotti, and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Allow to cool completely before serving.



Storage Instructions: Store biscotti in airtight container at room temperature for up to two weeks.
Freezing Instructions: Biscotti may be frozen for up to 3 months. I recommend storing them in a large freezer bag/container and placing parchment paper between each layer of biscotti. Thaw to room temperature before serving.
