Biscotti is the perfect snack paired with a delicious afternoon cup of coffee or tea! It’s not a cookie, a biscuit or a scone, so what exactly is a biscotti? A slightly sweet, crunchy slice of goodness! And who knew they are soooo easy to make at home? I first made these almost twenty years ago. Since then, I have tried creating several different variations. I hope you enjoy making these at home! Without further ado, here is the recipe:
Biscotti that you can make your own way with cranberries, almonds, pecans, chocolate chips, or anything your heart desires!
- 1 Mixing bowl
- 1 measuring cups and measuring spoons
- 1 Baking Sheet
- 1 Knife
- 1/2 Cup Oil
- 1 Cup Granulated Sugar
- 3 1/4 Cups Plain Flour
- 3 Eggs
- 1 TBSP Baking Powder
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
- Combine oil, sugar and eggs in a mixing bowl. Beat until combined. Slowly add four 1/2 cup at a time, adding 1 TBSP Baking Powder with the last 1/4 cup of flour. Mix until dough is formed. *You can add cranberries, orange zest, chocolate chips, almond slivers, pecans, ect. to add your favorite flavors to the biscotti!
- Shape dough into 2 equal sized loaves on a baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Slice loaves into 1 inch slices. Turn the slices onto their sides and bake an additional 10 minutes. Cool completely. Enjoy!
