Active Time:  20 Minutes
Total Time:  1 Hour 35 Minutes
  Makes about 40 cookies
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar, plus 1 tablespoon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3/4 cup whole unblanched almonds
3/4 cup whole hazelnuts
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

Sift the flour, 1 cup of the sugar, the salt, and the baking powder into a large mixing bowl. In a small bowl, lightly whisk the eggs and vanilla together. Make a well in the flour, pour in the eggs and, with a fork or your finger, pull the dry ingredients into the wet to make a soft dough.

Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface and gently knead the nuts into the dough. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes.

Divide the dough into 4 pieces and form each piece into a log 10 inches long by 2 inches wide. Place the logs on the prepared cookie sheet 2 inches apart, brush them with water, and sprinkle on the remaining tablespoon of the sugar, and bake for 25 minutes. The logs should be firm but still pliable. Cool for 10 minutes.

When the logs are cool, use a serrated knife to cut them on an angle into 1-inch slices. Lay the cookies out on the cookie sheet. Lower the oven temperature to 300 degrees F. and bake for 35 minutes. To check that the cookies are dry enough, remove one from the oven and let it cool. The cookies should be dry and crisp. Cool completely and store well covered.

Great Cantucci!!!
While in Tuscany, my husband and I enjoyed many a fine cappuccino accompanied by these crunchy, not-overly-sweet cookies. We love them and stated buying them in the local grocery stores. When we returned home I wanted to continue to serve them with coffee. After purchasing several brands of biscotti,none of them had the fresh flavor we were looking for. While looking on line for a recipe this one looked good! Itis a hit! Everyone loves these cookies!
