BISCOTTI SAL BRUNO
Preheat oven to 350.
1/2 cup (1/4 lb.) butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. anise flavoring
Beat into the above mixture:
1 cup coarsely chopped toasted almonds, walnuts,
or hazelnuts (or a combo)(if you use a highpowered mixer,
add hand at end; they tend to get too fine otherwise)
3 cups sifted flour
3 tsps. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
On a floured surface, knead gently until smooth.
Divide dough intothree equal pieces and shape into a roll
just under the length of a cookie baking sheet.
Roll the roll into sesame seeds to coat it (optional).
Place each roll on a cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes.
