2 doz. biscotti
13 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 cup sugar or Organic Evaporated Cane Juice Crystals
1 tsp Pure Anise Extract
2 medium eggs
2 2/3 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup Large Roasted Almonds

Cream butter and sugar together on low speed in a mixer with a paddle attachment. Add Pure Anise Extract. Mix just to blend. Add eggs one at a time and mix until just blended. Scrape bowl between egg additions. Add flour and mix until incorporated. Add Almonds and mix to distribute.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into a log the length of a cookie sheet. Beat the remaining egg. Brush the surface of the log with the egg and sprinkle with granulated sugar. Bake for 30 minutes. Allow to cool. Lower oven temperature to 300. Slice biscotti into 1/2" slices, but keep them side by side. Place on cookie sheet and separate slightly. Dry the biscotti in the oven for about 30 minutes. Allow to cool. Cookies will become completely crisp as they cool.
