Saffron Biscotti Recipe

Makes about 3 dozen biscotti
Hands-on time: 45 minutes
From start to finish: 2 hours, 30 minutes

• About 30 threads saffron (to yield 1/8 teaspoon ground saffron)
• 1 egg, at room temperature
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 1/4 cup almonds
• 1 cup all-purpose flour
• 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
• 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
• 1 egg white



1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

2. Crush the saffron threads with a mortar and pestle until powdery or grind them in a clean spice grinder; alternatively, you can finely mince the saffron. The finer the powder, the more intense the saffron color and flavor in the biscotti.
