What is Biscotti?

Biscotti is a traditional Italian biscuit, usually made with almonds or pistachios. It’s baked twice so it’s very crisp and dry (but that’s intentional!). It’s usually long and narrow in shape, perfect for dipping. Try my Raspberry Chocolate Chip Biscotti for another flavorful take on this Tuscan favorite.

Biscotti is ANYTHING But Boring

I used to have totally the wrong idea about biscotti. I thought since it was hard all the way through, it had to be boring and flavorless. Y’all, I was wrong. Biscotti is delicious. And the hardness makes it perfect for enjoying with my coffee. Or DIPPING in my coffee. If you haven’t tried it, this is your sign.

  1. This took a couple attempts but finally got it it to work. The first batch was too moist to really work it into a loaf. I kept at it, and after making quite a mess popped it in the oven. Took it out after 25 minutes, sliced it and put it back in, flipping every 15 minutes, but only twice. It turned out so hard I’d call it teeth breaking. Threw it all in the trash. Made a second batch but this time refrigerated the dough for about an hour. Worked it into a loaf and let it sit for a bit so it wasn’t too cold and popped it into a 325 oven for 30 minutes. Sliced it and put it back in for 30 minutes, flipping every 10 minutes. Worked great this time! I don’t have a problem with my oven temp, and I didn’t use a dark pan, but the lower temp worked for me.
