  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extract. Combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cardamom; add to the creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. Fold in almonds.
  2. Divide dough into fourths; shape each portion into a ball. On two greased baking sheets, roll each ball into a 15-in. log (two logs per pan). Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch.
  3. Transfer to a cutting board; cut at a 45 degrees F angle with a sharp knife into 1/2-in. slices. Place cut side down on greased baking sheets. Bake for 5-6 minutes on each side or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight containers.

We LOVE this recipe. Every Christmas, my Dad and I (with some help from the kids), bake about 2000 cookies. This is one of the recipes we use year after year. These cookies disappear off the c...

This biscotti recipe is awesome! I did make a couple of changes that was suggested by others. One was to add an extra spoon full of sour cream and 2 tablespoons of rum to help the dough to be a ...

The dough was a little dry, but fixed it with a little blob of extra sour cream. Added about 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and some dark chocolate chips; reduced the sugar to 1 1/2 cups. Really, really ni...

I had to cook these longer to get them the appropriate hardness. The texture wasn't perfect, but the flavor was good. Next time I'll try substituting fresh yogurt for sour cream to make the do...

I changed serving size to 22 (to get it down to one egg!) and still used 1 tsp of Cardamom. I also toasted the almonds before adding, used a little more almond extract and a blob more of sour c...

This biscotti recipe is wonderful! The "cookies" turned out just right...not too hard, not too soft. I did end up omitting the cardamom. I added a dash of nutmeg and ginger, replaced the almo...

We loved these, terrific with port or with coffee. I used the pistachio nuts as another reader suggested and ! cut down sugar to 1 1/2 cups. Also increased cardamom to 1 1/2 teasp for a richer...
