Almond Biscotti....

2 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. oatmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix these first six ingredients together and then set aside. In another bowl mix together:

2 eggs
3 Tb. oil
2 tsp orange zest
2 tsp lemon zest
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
1/2 c. slivered almonds
1/4 c. water

Mix the wet ingredients together with a mixer and then add the dry ingredients and mix till everything is come together. If you need a little extra liquid then add a little. Then with floured hands transfer the dough to a baking sheet and form it into a rectangle shape that is about 1 1/2" thick. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Then take the biscotti out and little it cool for about 15 minutes. Turn oven down to 250 degrees. When the biscotti is cooled slice it into 1 inch stripes and lay the stripes on there side. Put them back in the oven for 15 minutes on one side and then turn them over and another 15 minutes on the other side or until they look browned. Then take them out and let them cool. Store in an air tight container.

If you want drizzled chocolate on top just melt down some chocolate chips and drizzle on the top after they have cooled.

Enjoy them with some coffee or tea:)
