Growing up in an Italian family, I have acquired quite a taste for excellent cuisine. For dessert we always seemed to have a version of my grandmother's famous Biscotti. One year, my mother decided to take on the role of biscotti-maker. When I heard the smoke alarm begin its deafening wail, I knew it was a failed attempt. Needless to say, my mother realized that role was better left to the expert. This mix insures you will not suffer the same trauma.
Mix the contents of this package with
- 2 EGGS LIGHTLY BEATEN
- 2 ½ TBSP LIQUID (CAN BE WATER, ANISE, ORANGE JUICE OR COFFEE)
Preheat your oven to 350 f. Using your hands, mix all ingredients together and knead the dough for to 3 minutes. Divide the dough into 2 pieces. On a floured surface, roll each piece into 1/2" thick rope. Place on a greased or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Reset your oven to 275 f. After bread has cooled, use a sharp knife cut the Biscotti into 1 1/2 inch slices. Bake for 15 minutes more or until Biscotti slices are toasted. Biscotti is traditionally served with coffee and dipped in it prior to eating. Experiment with additional ingredients and find your own favorite recipe!
