Spiced Almond Biscotti Recipe

Prep Time: 30 min

Cooking Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hour 30 min

Yield: 25 cookies



  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, at room temperature
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon fleur de sel, sea salt
  • 5-6 whole cloves, crushed.
  • Fresh ground nutmeg, a pinch.
  • 1 cup roasted almonds. 


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and set it aside.
  2. In a wide bowl combine the butter and sugar. Mix it with a wooden spoon until the mixture looks crumbly.
  3. Add in the egg one after another until well combined. Add the almond extract, mix and set aside.
  4. In a separate bowl whisk the dry ingredients together, flour, baking powder, salt, cloves, and nutmeg.
  5. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet mixture until well combined.
  6. Add the roasted almonds and mix with the hands to form a smooth dough. Divide the dough into two portions to form a rectangular log and place it in the prepared baking tray. Bake for 25-30 minutes until the log starts to lightly brown.
  7. Allow the baked log to rest for 10 minutes and start slicing it diagonally about 1 inch thick and place the slices back on the same baking tray.
  8. Reduce the oven temperature to 325 degrees F and bake the biscotti for 30 - 40 minutes by flipping the biscotti to the other side halfway through until the biscotti turns crispy and golden.
  9. Once done serve the spiced almond biscotti with coffee to enjoy,
