I became addicted to this flavour of biscotti at the local coffee shop, and found the recipe on a random site. It is -AWESOME- so I have to share!! Very VERY easy (only my 2nd try at biscotti ever) and SO tasty.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Pre-heat oven to 350°F.
- 2Beat sugar and margarine together.
- 3Add anise seeds and eggs, mix well.
- 4Add flour and baking powder, mix well.
- 5Add almonds, mix.
- 6Shape dough into a rectangle approximately 6"-8" wide, 1"-1.5" thick and 12" or so long. Try to keep it consistently wide so that the biscotti pieces are uniform in length.
- 7Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until golden brown (test with a toothpick to make sure the middle is done).
- 8Remove from oven, allow to cool completely (trust me on this -- it will really make the cutting easier).
- 9Cut into about 1/2" thick slices, lay out pieces on their side on baking sheet and bake (350°F) for 6-10 minutes (until golden brown).
- 10Flip them over, put back in the oven for another 3-5 minutes, until crisp (to your preference -- Just remember that they will become crisper as they cool).
- 11Let cool, and enjoy! Store in an airtight container.
- 12TIPS: Will keep for a month or so, but be warned, anise flavour may get stronger over time! Don't be afraid to decorate with drizzled chocolate, dipping, etc. Also, feel free to fiddle with the ingredients. For extra flavour you can add almond extract, or anise extract (I think that would be an anise overkill but we all have our own taste!), or vanilla extract -- Give it a try!
