directions

  • Beat eggs, sugar, and oil. Mix in flour, baking powder, vanilla, and anise. Spread in greased metal ice cube trays or loaf pans. If using loaf pans, only fill 1/3 full. This recipe makes about 3 trays or pans worth.
  • Bake 20-25 minutes at 350 degrees. Remove from oven and cut in slices crosswise. Place slices on baking sheet and brown under broiler, then flip slices and brown on other side. Watch the cookies carefully, it is easy to burn them in this step. Normally the best idea is to broil with oven door open a crack and watch as they go.

    This recipe is the real deal! I was searching for one that my husband's uncle had given me years ago & I couldn't find it. Unfortunately, Uncle passed away last year so I couldn't ask him...but this one is pretty much the same thing, same method, etc. Instead of anise seed, I used anise extract (about 2 tsp.) but otherwise, I followed the recipe as written. Very good...recommended!

    Good, but not quite the consistency I was looking for, not anisey enough and I didn't like the shape baking in the bread pans gave, although it was very easy to do it that way. They popped right out of the pans for the second part of the cooking.

    This was my first ever attempt at making biscotti and it was a huge success! The directions were very easy to follow. Definitely be careful when you place them under the broiler because they brown very fast.
