biscotti recipe

A few of you have emailed asking about my basic biscotti recipe. My base recipe is simple enough, so you just need to decide what you want to add – nuts, chocolate chips, dried fruit, etc… One-third of a cup of any of those is enough for this recipe and if you want to experiment with flavored extracts, one teaspoon should suffice.

Basic Biscotti Recipe

1/4 cup butter
6 Tbsp. sugar
1 egg
1 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
pinch salt

Cream the butter and sugar in an electric mixer. Beat in the egg. Mix in the flour, baking powder and salt until just incorporated. Form into a log about 3-4 inches wide, 1 inch thick, and maybe 10-12 inches long, and bake on a silicone baking sheet at 325 for about 25 minutes, or until completely cooked. Cool and slice diagonally into 1/4 inch slices, then bake again until crisp, 10-12 minutes. Cool completely before eating.
