This recipe was given to me by Maria- it's the one used by her Italian grandmother.

2 1/2 cups white flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon almond extract

Preheat oven to 350.
Grease and flour a cookie sheet.

Beat together the butter and sugar- add eggs and almond extract, beat thoroughly.

Add dry ingredients- beat until blended.

Spread on the cookie sheet in 2 ovals approximately 5"x11"

Bake for 20 minutes- until they are slightly golden brown.

Cut into 1" thick slices, and bake again- about 15 minutes.

The almond extract can be replaced with anise.
The biscotti can be dipped in melted bittersweet or milk chocolate before being allowed to cool.
