Biscotti recipe calls for blanched almonds. I have unblanched on hand. Does it matter?

Too lazy too blanch, and if I don't need to, even better. But does it matter? Is it purely aesthetic to use blanched almonds? Will the skins lend a bad flavor or burn on the exterior if they're exposed? The stores are swamped and I need this biscotti tomorrow a.m!

It's totally ok to use unblanched almonds -- I often do in recipes that call for blanched.
