30 Days 30 Cookies: Biscotti

The cookie so nice we baked it twice? I don’t think that’s right. Biscotti is a fun cookie because you can dip it in your coffee. When I worked at a casino we would occasionally prepare biscotti for the buffet. I would feel so proud because the biscotti would make a lovely display at the dessert section of the buffet and I would become deflated when costumers would complain that the cookies were too hard and therefore they must be stale. Every so often I would attempt to explain that that was how biscotti were supposed to be but would often be met with raised eyebrows.

Ingredients

  • 8 oz Butter
  • 10 Sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 16 oz Flour
  • 12 oz Almond flour
  • 1/3 oz Baking powder
  • 6 oz mix in (you can use chocolate, dried fruit or nuts. Today I used chocolate chips for half and the other half I mixed in white chocolate and cranberries.)

Process

  1. Sift the flour, almond flour and baking powder aside. Set aside.
  2. Cream the butter, sugar, vanilla and salt.
  3. Add eggs one at a time waiting between each eggs until each is incorporated. Scrape down sides a needed.
  4. Add the sifted the dry ingredients. Stop mixing once everything is incorporated.
  5. At this portion I separated my dough into two balls and added my mix ins. Form into two loafs.
  6. Bake at 350 F for 35-40 Minutes. Allow to cool.
  7. Cut into your desired slices and place flat on pan bake again at 200F for roughly 20 minutes.
  8. Dip in coffee and enjoy!
