December 31, 2020  Online Recipe Guide Avatar

Mandelbrot? Biscotti?……No matter what the appellations, these would taste as sweet.
Take care not to let this brown too much.

½ cup oil
1 ¼ cup sugar
1/3 cup honey
3 eggs
3 egg yolks
2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1 teaspoon pure almond extract
scrapings of one vanilla bean,
4 cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 cup whole, blanched almonds, lightly toasted
½ cup ground almonds

1 egg white, whisked
½ cup, approximately, flaked almonds

Preheat oven to 350 F. Double up two baking sheets and line top one with parchment paper.

In a mixer, blend the oil, sugar, honey, eggs, egg yolks, vanilla, almond extract, and vanilla scrapings.

Add flour, baking powder, salt, and whole and ground almonds. Blend well to make a firm batter.

Form into 2 logs, about 10 inches by 3-4 inches wide.
Brush top of logs with egg white, then sprinkle on flaked almonds.

Bake 40-45 minutes until lightly golden and firm.

Cool well, reduce heat to 325 F.
Cut into diagonal slices, about one inch thick.
Rebake, turning once, about 12-16 minutes.

Makes 2-3 dozen
