Easy Cinnamon-Almond Biscotti

My favorite homemade biscotti.

But first a disclaimer ~

If you make these biscotti yours will be a lovely golden brown color.

Those in the pictures are MUCH darker than if you follow the recipe; as these were ordered by a CINNAMON-NUT who requested DOUBLE cinnamon. I complied but they actually look like they are chocolate flavored. Yours will look different if you follow the recipe as written.

Personally I like the recipe just as written (without the extra cinnamon).

I've made these many times over the past couple of years as everybody loves them, and I always include them in our Christmas goodie baskets for friends and family.

Although these are baked twice, as traditional biscotti are ~ and have a firm texture, they do not have the "break your teeth" characteristic of some biscotti.

This time I dipped some in melted chocolate; Semi-Sweet on some, and White on the others ~ but they are perfectly delicious without the chocolate dip.

A silicone baking mat is a perfect no-stick surface while allowing the chocolate to set up.

If you like Biscotti, and the combination of Almonds and Cinnamon, I think you will adore these as much as we do. I hope you will try them!
