Biscotti is delicious.  Whenever I tell people that I make biscotti, they look at me in horror because of how difficult they think it is. But, it isn’t difficult at all.  This is one of the easiest recipes that I have ever made, and it comes out perfect every time.  I didn’t create this recipe (it’s on the internet), but I have made other biscotti recipes and this is the one that I stick to.  The other thing about biscotti is the many variations that you can make. In these biscotti, I put chocolate chips and almonds and they were great.  If you are going to make a new cookie recipe this season, make biscotti.  Your family and friends will definitely be impressed.



1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

3 Eggs

1 Cup Sugar

1 TBSP Anise Extract

3 1/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour

1 TBSP Baking Powder



Preheat oven to 375º.  Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.  In a medium bowl, beat together the oil, eggs, sugar and anise extract until well blended.  In a separate bowl, combine the flour and baking powder.  Stir flour mixture into the egg mixture to form a heavy dough.  Divide dough into 2 pieces.  Form each piece into a roll as long as your cookie sheet and press down to 1/2 inch thickness.  

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from the baking sheet and cool on a wire rack.  When the cookies are cool enough to handle, slice into 1/2-inch slices.  Place slices cut side up back onto the baking sheet.  Bake for an additional 6 to 10 minutes on each side.  Cookie slices should be lightly toasted.


Biscotti Variations without changing the basic recipe:

  1.  Dip 1/2 the cookie in melted chocolate
  2. 1 Cup Dried Cranberries; 1 Cup Pistachios or Almonds; 1 Cup White Chocolate pieces or chips
  3. 1 Cup Almonds; 1/2 Cup Dried Apricots
  4. 1 Cup Chocolate Chips
