Preheat oven to 425F
Blend flour, salt, and baking powder. Add sugar (make a well)

Personal Notes:
This recipe has become a staple for much of the Atkin family, but originally came from Uncle Rick's Italian Grandma. My parents made these with Uncle Rick, Aunt Carol and Rick's Mom for years! Must be served with her wonderful rice pudding! There have been very few holidays where we have not made these delicious biscotti! They are also wonderful dipped in coffee.
