Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Bake raw almonds in your oven for 9 minutes. Set aside and let cool.
  2. Chop apricots into small pieces, about 1/4 inch square, then put in a bowl. Pour the vodka over the apricots and let them sit.
  3. Cream butter and sugar together in a bowl, until light and fluffy.
  4. >Add eggs and Grand Marnier and blend thoroughly.
  5. Measure flour, baking powder and salt into the bowl of wet ingredients and mix together thoroughly.
  6. Chop or cut almonds into thirds. Then add to mix.
  7. Add apricots to the bowl and mix almonds and apricots into the dough.
  8. Form two logs of dough onto the parchment paper. You may have to flour your hands to keep dough from sticking.
  9. Bake logs for 30 minutes at 325 degrees.
  10. Let cool for a minimum of 10 minutes. Cool logs are much easier to slice.
  11. Using a sharp knife, slice logs into biscotti about 1/2 inch wide. For longer biscotti, slice diagonally.
  12. Stand biscotti on edge on parchment paper, and bake at 300 degrees for 15 minutes. Sides should be dried out and stiff. They harden up slightly when cool. You can use the same piece of parchment paper again for the second baking.
  13. Let cool and eat!
