Unfortunately I don't have any pictures or modifications to this recipe, all I can do is vouch for it. But that's good enough for me (because then the next time I want to make it I know which recipe is good).
Last semester a couple of new math professors hosted a house warming party. As a lowly graduate student, I didn't really want to bring them wine (it's more expensive and I don't know their taste). So I did the only obvious thing I could think of: I decided to bake something. A loaf of homemade bread is one of my favorite gifts for hosts (but with the gluten free craze it may be risky now). I think I was a little pressed for time, so I decided on a baked dessert and I wanted something that could be transported easily but was still classy. Having never made biscotti, it seemed like the perfect option. And I chose almond because I always have more than enough almonds. It was a good recipe, I think I baked the biscotti a little longer than recommended in the second bake, which is good: they came out nice and crisp.
