Coffee's Best Friend

Coffee's Best Friend

If you're a Harveys fan then you know we love a good cup of coffee around the office! Since nothing goes better with a hot cup of coffee than a sweet treat, we wanted to bake up something special for First Friday.

Melanie's brother, Scott, loves to bake so we invited him to join us for a special First Friday Live at Five. He made some of his famous Scottie biscotti and we have the recipe so you can try it out for yourself! This recipe makes two smaller loaves of biscotti that you can share with friends or save all for yourself.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup raw whole almonds
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp almond extract

Making the Dough:

  • Preheat oven to 350 °
  • Prepare two cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • In a large bowl mix together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt
  • Chop almonds in half and add to above mixture
  • In a separate bowl mix sugar, eggs, and the vanilla and almond extracts with a whisk
  • Mix wet and dry ingredients together with a spatula

Shaping and Baking:

  • Split dough in half and form two 3" wide low loaves and place in the center of each cookie sheet
  • Bake each loaf for 30 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes
  • Lower oven temperature to 300 °
  • Slice each loaf into 1/2" thick pieces
  • Lay the pieces on their sides and bake for another 10 minutes
  • Flip the pieces onto the other side and bake for another 10 minutes
  • Optional: melt your favorite chocolate and dip half of biscotti and place on parchment paper to cool
