From Sandra Lee's 'Semi-Homemade Desserts' Biscotti from cake mix? Sounds too good to be true. One I must try. (Eric McCormack is Will from Will and Grace ^---)

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) box dark fudge cake mix or (18 1/4 ounce) box devil's food cake mix, moist variety
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 12 cup butter, melted

  • Scrape dough onto 1 prepared baking sheet and form dough into 13-inch log that is 3 inches wide.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, or until toothpick inserted into center of biscotti comes out clean. Cool for 35 minutes.

    Made as directed using our KitchenAid. This recipe is great using a cake mix. The only qualm with this recipe is even though the oven gets turned down to 200F., the cookies seemed to have a burnt aroma/taste to them even though they were not. Next time we will omit that step. The flavor is wonderful though, thanks for sharing the recipe. :)

    I love these biscottis. I found the recipe in the Cake Mix Doctor book. Used Hazelnuts instead of the almonds and added 1 tsp of vanilla instead of the almond extract. Wonderful cookies.
