    ⅓ cup (1½ oz) ground almonds
  • baking powder icon
    2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter icon
    1 stick (4 oz) unsalted butter

    diced, at room temperature

  • white sugar icon
    ¾ cup (5¼ oz) white sugar
  • lemon icon
    3 lemons

    zest finely grated

  • fine salt icon
    ¼ tsp fine salt
  • large egg icon
    3 large eggs
  • blueberries icon
    5 oz blueberries


  • 1Insert the wire rack into position 6. Set the oven to Bake, Convection, 355°F, for 25 minutes and press Start to preheat. Meanwhile, continue to the next step.
  • 2Place the flour, ground almonds and baking powder in a bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.
  • 3Using a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, sugar, lemon zest and salt until pale and creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping the side of the bowl occasionally.
  • 4Add the flour mixture and mix until just combined. Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold through the blueberries.
  • 5Turn the dough out onto a floured countertop. Divide into two portions and shape each portion into a loaf, approximately 11-inches long. Place the loaves in the parchment paper-lined roasting pan, evenly spaced so there is room for them to spread.
  • 6Once preheated, place the pan in the oven and cook for 25 minutes.
  • 7The loaves should be golden brown. If not, cook them a little longer.
  • 8Cool the loaves in the pan for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, adjust the oven to Air Fry, Super Convection, 300°F, for 10 minutes and press Start.
  • 9Using a serrated knife, cut each loaf into approximately ¾-inch thick slices. Place half the slices, in a single layer, in the air fry basket.
  • 10Place the basket in rack position 3 and cook for 10 minutes.
  • 11The biscotti should be golden and feel dry to touch. If not, cook them a little longer. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Repeat with the remaining slices.
  • 12Biscotti can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
