Almond Citrus Biscotti Rolls

Awhile back I saw on another blog where they had baked cookies in round coin wrappers. They were so cute and round, I have been dying to try it. So I bought a pkg of these

And whipped up a batch of Biscotti dough to stuff in them

And ended up with these

Almond Citrus Biscotti
1/2 softened butter
1-1/2c. sugar
3 eggs
1t. lime juice
1t. almond extract
3-1/2c. flour
2t. baking powder
pinch of salt
chocolate for dipping
toasted, chopped almonds

Oven 350
Cream together the butter and sugar, beat in the eggs one by one. Beat in the extract and lime juice. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt slowly add in. Mix until dough starts coming together. Press into coin wrappers, and place them all on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove them from the oven, trim off any ends, take wrappers off the cookies. Place them bake in the oven for 10 min. more, turn oven off and leave cookies for about 15 min.
Cool, dip in melted chocolate and almonds.

*As cute as these are they were a LOT of work, so I'm thinking they might be for special occasions only. Also the Biscotti recipe needs a little adjusting, next time I will be adding 1/4c. lime juice instead of 1 t. and an extra 1/4c. flour. They just need a little more citrus flavoring, I suppose a little lime zest would be good too.

These are too cute, but i can see how they would be labor intensive. I especially love that you dipped the ends in chocolate. They look like dessert cigars :-)
