Description

These biscotti-like cookies are infused with vanilla, flecked with orange zest and studded with almonds. Once mixed, the elastic-like dough is formed into long rolls, brushed with egg yolk and baked until golden. After they're removed from the oven, the cookies are sliced, returned to the tray and baked again. They will keep for several days in an airtight container in a cool, dry place. Serve them with a pot of French press coffee for dunking.
