Step 2: Making the Dough

Preheat oven to 350.  Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a bowl, combine GF flour, xanthan gum, baking soda, salt and spice.  Set aside.

In another bowl, beat together the butter, brown sugar, molasses, eggs, milk, vanilla, and almond extract.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients.  Mix until it forms a thin dough then add almonds and mix until combined.  The dough may be thinner or wetter than you are used to.  This is normal.

I made these the other day for my family. They started snacking on them whenever I pulled them out of the oven to turn or slice. By the time the biscotti were done, there were almost none left. 5/5 stars!
My daughter likes soft gingerbread cookies. So I dropped scoops of this batter onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and baked about 10-12 minutes. Perfect! So if you want a straight-up cookie, this will do the trick. Ice them with a some slightly lemony icing and you have another great treat.
We just found out my mil has to have gluten-free products. She does not like hard bakery items. Are these hard? They sound delicious and I love biscotti<br><br>Thank you
They have the same texture as regular biscotti, so they are hard in that sense. Last year, they were gobbled-up by everyone, gluten-restricted or otherwise. If the texture is an issue, try baking some of the batter into cookies. My favorite part are actually the ends of the loaves which I don't put in for a second round of baking--I just eat them warm.
i wish i could cook 5 stars!
Looks like a Yummy treat for celiacs!
