MOCHA-ALMOND BISCOTTI

1/2 cup whole almonds, not blanched
1 teaspoon shortening
2&1/2 cups all-purpose white flour, divided
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 teaspoons instant coffee powder (regular or decaffeinated)
4 teaspoons water
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate, melted
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and bake for 12 to 14
minutes, or until lightly toasted. Remove from oven and set on rack to cool.

Grease cool baking sheet with shortening and set aside.

In a large bowl sift together 2 cups flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a
separate bowl whisk together eggs, egg whites and vanilla, and add to flour mixture; mix
just until smooth.

Divide the dough in half. In a small bowl, combine cocoa, instant coffee and water. Add
the cocoa mixture and melted chocolate to one half of the dough. Mix just until
incorporated. To the other half, stir in almond extract and toasted almonds.

Sprinkle work surface with remaining 1/2 cup flour. Place half of the almond dough on
work surface. (This dough is very sticky. Use flour on work surface to keep hands
well-floured and to shape dough.) Pat into a 4-by-8-inch rectangle. Top with half of the
chocolate dough. Rollinto a cylinder, then roll the cylinder back and forth to form a
14-inch log, 1&1/2 inches thick. Repeat with the remaining halves of both kinds of
dough.


Place the logs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until firm to
the touch. Transfer the logs to a rack to cool completely. Reduce the oven temperature
to 300 degrees.

Using a serrated knife, cut the cooled logs diagonally, with a gently sawing motion, into
1/2-inch thick slices. Stand the slices upright with space between them on the baking
sheet and bake for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Store in an
airtight container. Will stay fresh for 1 month. Makes about 4 to 4&1/2 dozen biscotti.
