One of the most underrated cookies out there is the walnut biscotti. This crisp and nutty cookie is the perfect accompaniment to a cup of coffee or tea. It’s also a great cookie to have on hand for when unexpected company comes over.
3/4 cup walnut halves (toasted)
1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 egg whites

Cover and process, using quick on-and-off motions, until walnuts are consistency of coarse meal. Mix 1/2 cup of the ground walnuts and the remaining ingredients except egg whites in large bowl.

Shape each half into rectangle, 7 x 3 inches, on walnuts. Carefully transfer rectangles onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 15 minutes. Cut crosswise into 1/2″ slices. Turn slices cut sides down on cookie sheet. Bake 10 – 15 minutes or until crisp and browned. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Store tightly covered.
