Biscotti - Gift Recipes

Wrapping up homemade Biscotti cookies Tray of freshly made BiscottiUntitled
Out of all the delicious cookies out there, one that always seems to consistently come out well in large batches has to be rustic Biscotti. Dipped in lemon cream or Nutella, dotted with fudge chunks, candied cherries or pistachios... they're decadent without being over the top. Even those without a sweet tooth enjoy them with coffee (or Spiced Pumpkin Chai) and because they're on the crunchier side, they can travel. Even though the post. Find the recipe below:

Biscotti - Gift Recipes
Out of all the cookies out there, Biscotti has to be one of my all time favorites. Not only do they require but a few ingredients but they're perfect for making big batches to give out as gifts. For how I like to wrap them up to give see here.
  • 1 cup White sugar
  • 3 Cups + 2 Tab all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons almond meal / powder
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon almond extract or amaretto
  • 2 drops anise extract (optional)
Preheat your oven to 375. Combine dry ingredients well, trying to remove as many lumps as possibleBeat eggs in a separate bowl and add extracts. Pour into dry ingredients and blend until a dough forms. On an ungreased cookie sheet form a long long shape with the biscotti dough about 1/2 inches thick in the center and sloping down to 1/4 inch at the edges, if possible. Brush the top of the dough with milk. Bake for 30 minutes. After the initial baking, slice biscotti log into 1/2 inches slices to form cookies, lay each one cut side down on the cookie sheet and bake again for an additional 6 minutes. Once cooled dip in lemon frosting, white chocolate, Nutella or sprinkle powdered sugar on top although leaving them plain is lovely too.
