Saffron Biscotti

I'm still in a "cookie-mood". Be cautious! These saffron biscotti seem so harmless, but they are highly addictive!

(From: Leila Lindholm - Piece of Cake)

100g butter
1 sachet of saffron (0.1g)
2 eggs
120g sugar
300g flour
1.5tsp baking powder
100g peeled whole almonds

Preheat the oven to 175°C.

Melt butter in a pan together with the saffron. Then, in a bowl, beat together with the eggs. Mix the dry ingredients together with the almonds in another bowl. Combine the dry ingredients with the egg-butter-mixture. Form three half-round thin loafs and put on a tray lined with parchment paper. Bake in the middle of the oven for about 25 minutes. Then, take them out of the oven and reduce the temperature to 125°C. Cut each loaf into about 1cm thick slices and put those back onto the tray. Bake for another 15 minutes.
