Pistachio Almond Biscotti

Wednesday, November 27, 2019
Biscotti can be traditional or adapted to many different creations to your preference.

These Pistachio Biscotti are really delicious and more gourmet than the Traditional Anisette Biscotti, we also make them often.


Get creative, make your favorite flavors, you can even omit nuts for people who have allergies.


I love to change up a regular easy batter like this one and change it to whatever flavors my family likes.


Lemon, orange, maple, cranberry, the list goes on an on with alternative things to add to this biscotti dough recipe.


Mix in some chopped cranberries, raisins, dates, figs into the batter for creative versions.


Even red and green chopped cherries for the holiday season, just getting you started on so many possibilities!


Maybe you're a chocolate chip lover, add your heart's desire to this batter.


An easy cookie to make after slice these while warm, and put them bake in the oven to toast again, maybe dipped in white chocolate, dark, sprinkles, or plain, this is an awesome recipe.


A traditional cookie that never grows old.


If you don't like anisette flavoring, you can add lemon, orange, almond or any extract flavor you like!


Biscotti is a crunchy cookie that's great with a hot beverage like espresso or tea.

Tips


  • Always cook the logs until golden brown (if they are not cooked all the way through they won't slice right)
  • Use parchment paper or Silpat mat for baking
  • Only use butter for this recipe
  • I personally use a serrated knife to slice the cookies on a cutting board
  • Use coordinating flavored extracts and zest for changing flavors
  • Dip in chocolate during the holiday and decorate the ends

Roll into logs



After the dough is mixed, roll into logs, place on a baking cookie sheet.


Bake these logs at least 25 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.


Cool a few minutes before slicing with a sharp knife.


Return to the oven to bake until toasted on both sides.

Italian Cookies



Our family loves cookies, but grandma's and mom's recipe for Italian biscotti will always be near and dear to our hearts.


They would make biscotti for every wedding tray, holiday and during the year for when company came over for a visit.


Grandma would make the espresso and always had the anisette flavored biscotti on the table.


A traditional staple in our Italian home, I hope you will love this recipe as much as we do.

  6. Need a giant cup of coffee to go with these. My mama makes these and sends them in care packages to me on occasion. I don't have it in me to give them a try just yet because I know mine would never turn out just like my mamas.
