Pre heat oven to 350

1 pkg of Duncan hines fudge cake mix

1 cup of flour

1/2 cup of chopped almonds

2 eggs

1 tsp.of almond extract

1/2 cup(1 stick) melted butter

Mix all ingredients together and divide in half. This is a very sticky dough so have a towel on hand. Place parchment paper on two cookie sheets. Form dough into two logs 2 x 12. Bake one log at a time for 30-35 minutes. Let cool for 15- 20 minutes. Then with a serrated knife cut into biscotti. Bake cut biscotti for 15 minutes and then cool completely. Dip biscotti in white chocolate and sprinkle with chopped almonds.

Hello Sheila! Welcome to the wonderful world of blogging.
Wish you were here in Ohio so I
could try some of your FABULOUS lunches. What a wonderful business.
I'm sure you work very hard at it.
I LOVE Biscotti...
my Italian Mama use to make them. I remember as a child the Italian woman neighbors sitting around our kitchen table table chatting in Italian drinking coffee and dunking their Biscotti.
Thanks for bringing back this lovely memory to me.
