I’ve always heard about Biscotti and all I have ever thought is that they were EXTREMELY DRY cookies that looked like something I would feed to my dog…Well that is if my husband ever comes to my way of thinking and caves in and we get one! But all that put aside, I made Biscotti and it wasn’t too hard. In all honesty it really wasn’t too bad. I think if I had a big cup of Hot Chocolate to dip it in I would have liked it much better. My mom on the other hand ate at least four pieces! I think the only thing I would have changed would be to add some sort of flavor to it like a White Chocolate Orange Biscotti, or Cherry Almond Biscotti. Maybe next time I will drizzle some chocolate over it…mmmmm, so many possibilities! Feel free to try it on your first go-round. But for now we are making Biscotti, so gather your ingredients.
Bake the loaves at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Once baked cut the loaves diagonally in ½ inch slices, flip them down, and bake for 12 min.
These really didn’t turn out bad, and I think next time I will add a little treat like chocolate, or maybe a nice dried fruit…honestly the possibilities are endless! Give them a try and let me know how it turns out – if you liked it, or if you enjoyed it just the way it is.
Until next time …
