  • Top with crème fraîche, caraway seeds and sprigs of dill before serving. Store in airtight container until ready to serve. Best served chilled.

For the Olive and Almond Biscotti:

  • Makes 25 toasts (pieces)
  • Preheat oven to 350 Degrees F. Spay a 9″ loaf pan with non-stick spray and line bottom with parchment paper. Spray the parchment paper with non-stick spray.
  • In a bowl, whisk flours, sugar, herbes, baking soda and ground pepper. Stir in buttermilk then add the almonds and olives.
  • Pour mixture into pan, even out mixture and tap pan on counter to remove any air pockets that may have formed.
  • Bake for 30 minutes then remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from pan and place on cooling rack until completely cool.
  • Decrease oven temperature to 325 degrees F. Flip the loaf so that you have the flat “bottom” part facing upwards and begin to slice 1/4″ slices using a serrated bread knife. Lay slices on an icing grate on a baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until crisp. Let biscotti cool and serve.
