And I can store them in an aluminium box for over 2 weeks!

The dough will be a little bit sticky, don’t worry it’s  suppose to be so.

Divide the dough in two equal parts.

Cover your working board with flour and shape the dough in two  “frech bread”.

“Biscotti” originate in Italy and it literally mean double baked biscuits.

First baking will be done with the dough shaped as a “french bread”.

You need to bake them for about 20 – 25 minutes at 380F (until golden).

Remove them from the oven after the first bake and let them cool down.

When cooled, cut them into 1 inch pieces  and place them again in the oven at 380F.

  1. I make biscotti almost identically to yours! So many people wrongfully assume that biscotti is like the butter-laden cookie you get at coffee shops or costco, while in reality the old recipes are in fact butterless. I will definitely try your recipe out 🙂

    • Hi,
      Yes, exactly! I love biscotti because you don’t have to use any butter (I always cut the amount of butter to half or even less in any recipe I make) and you can make endless combinations of fruits and nuts and spices…My old time favorite is biscotii with tons of cocoa, mint chocolate and pistachio! 😀
      Thank you for your visit! 🙂
