Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a baking tray.
In a large bowl, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, almonds and orange zest. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs, oil and almond extract. Stir or mix by hand until the mixture forms a ball.
Separate dough into 2 pieces and roll each one into a log about 20cm long. Place logs on prepared baking tray and flatten so they are about 2cm thick. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes.
Cool slightly, and remove from baking trays. Slice diagonally into 1cm slices with a serrated knife. Set biscotti on back onto the baking tray and bake for 10 to 15 more minutes, turning over after half of the time. Finished biscotti should be hard and crunchy.
I made half a batch but the consistency of the mixture was not correct. It was more cake/batter mix rather than dough mix. This could be either due to the weights being incorrect, or down to me incorrectly measuring them. I rescued the mix by adding extra flour and the biscotti seem to be fine. But I will reserve judgement until tomorrow :-) - 23 Oct 2012
