Biscotti make a great holiday gift. The best way to package them is in a clear plastic airtight container; they store longer. To personalize the gift, use paint markers and ribbon to decorate.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°.

Step 2

Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Stir well; set aside. Combine eggs, egg white, vanilla, orange rind, and orange juice in a large bowl, and stir with a whisk. Add flour mixture, and stir until well-blended.

Step 3

Turn dough out onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Shape dough into two 13-inch-long rolls; flatten to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove rolls from baking sheet; let cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.

Step 4

Reduce oven temperature to 275°.

Step 5

Cut each roll diagonally into 18 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Bake at 275° for 40 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; let cool completely on wire rack.
