This week, the recipe for biscotti is on page 165 of our book A Taste of Utica and posted by Mella’s Grandson.

I substituted a lot of the flour for brazil nut and oat flour.  The result was not a crisp biscotti but a softer texture with a mild, unique flavor.  It was perfected by topping it off with melted dark and white chocolate.

  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup milk *If you use the nut and oat flours as I did, reduce the milk.  In fact, add milk last so you can get desired consistency.
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp almond or anise flavor
  • 6 cups flour
  • 6 tsp baking powder
  • *I added 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Cream together the eggs, shortening and sugar. Add milk, vanilla and flavorings.  Add flour and baking powder.  Shape into loaves on a lightly floured surface *Makes 6 loaves the length of a cookie sheet. 

Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 350 F for 18 – 20 minutes. Cut into biscotti shape.

I love this recipe.  It’s unique, doesn’t break any teeth while eating it and looks kind of pretty.

          I have never made biscotti before but I love having it with coffee. Is this hard to make?
