Start by blending softened butter and sugar until creamy, then add eggs and vanilla. Stir dry ingredients together and gradually blend into the butter mixture, then add chopped nuts. If you like to play with your food, you will love this recipe. Dust your hands with powdered sugar and divide the dough in half. Roll portions into logs, place on baking sheet and bake. After the biscotti logs have cooled, use a sharp serrated knife to gently saw the logs into slices, then bake again. Watch these slices close – they are cut thin and you don’t want them to get too dark.
