In a bowl, whip the eggs with sugar until you have a fluffy, light mixture.
Gradually add the flour, stirring thoroughly each time.
Mix in the chopped dried apricots, raisins, and almonds.
Combine the ingredients and shape the dough into small logs. Place them on a baking sheet with some space in between. Gently press down on the dough logs.
Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C (356°F) for about 30 minutes or until they turn golden brown.
Remove the logs from the oven and let them cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Then, slice the biscotti at an angle into 1 cm thick slices.
