Macadamia Nutty Biscotti

Biscuit or Biscotti is a hard,dry and instensely flavoured cookie which is usually dipped in coffee or milk.They're made by baking a loaf of cookie dough, slicing it and then twice-baked.They come in several flavors including almond, chocolate, hazelnut and etc. Make sure stored it in a dry and airtight container to keep the cripsyness but if you want them soft just don't bake them hard on the second round in the oven so they stay soft.Usually, if biscotti recipes don't have egg whites and rice flour,they have a better chance of being on the soft side.This recipe isn't hard as a rock but crispy.
4 egg whites
110gm castor sugar
Pinch of salt
120gm Flour
30gm Rice flour
100gm Whole Almonds
100gm Macadamias
1 tbsp Almond Extract

Macadamia nuts are my FAVORITE. They are so buttery. Should go well from a firm cookie. Can't wait to try this too!!
