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.

Combine the dry ingredients

And set them aside…Mix your wet ingredients

Add your wet to your dry and mix well

Dump your dough out of the bowl and shape into two loafs about 12 x 3 x 1 ½  inches

 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.

Then flip and bake for another 10 min or until dry and crisp.

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 …

  1. First time I’ve ever had Biscotti, it looked like something that would break you teethe but it’s looks were deceiving and I liked it. This would definitely make snack like hot chocolate more filling.
