Re: Biscotti!!! I need the recipe plzzzzz...

Basic Biscotti    

Ingredients :

4    oz    Blanched almonds
2 1/2    cup    Flour
2    cup    Granulated sugar
1/4    tsp    Salt
1/4    tsp    Baking soda
3    x    Eggs

    Method :

     PREHEAT OVEN TO 350F. Spread almonds on a baking sheet and toast them in oven until lightly golden. Let cool. Coarsely chop half the nuts. Butter 2 large baking sheets. Mix flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Beat in eggs, then whole and chopped nuts. Mix to obtain a firm dough. Knead briefly, then divide dough into 4 pieces. On a floured work surface, roll each piece under your hands into a cylinder 15 inches long and about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Place 2 rolls, well separated, on each baking sheet and bake 15 to 20 minutes, until very lightly browned and firm to the touch. With a spatula, carefully transfer the rolls to a cutting board and slice each one diagonally into cookies about 1/2-inch thick. Set wire racks on the baking sheets and lay out the biscotti on them. Return them to the oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until very firm and crisp. Cool on the racks, then transfer them to a tin for long keeping.
     Try adding 1 1/2-to-2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder to this recipe for a nice variation.

Re: Biscotti!!! I need the recipe plzzzzz...

I have a book with 50+ biscotti recipes (told you I had a problem)!

Agree with Sadie, some grated orange zest adds some zing.

And, yes, I cook biscotti for humans (of course).

But I've adapted biscotti recipes for dog birthday parties to fill a gap in the market (as well as mini-muffin "birthday cakes").

Any particular biscotti recipes (ingredients etc) that you wish?

Will do my best to post ASAP.

Cocoa Almond Biscotti     

Ingredients :

1/2    cup    Butter or margarine, softened
1    cup    Sugar
2    lrg    Eggs
1 1/2    tbl    Coffee liqueur*
2 1/4    cup    All-purpose flour
1 1/2    tsp    Baking powder
1/4    tsp    Salt
1 1/2    tbl    Cocoa
1    can    Whole almonds (6-ounce)

    Method :

    Combine butter and sugar in a large bowl; beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating well. Mix in liqueur. Combine flour and the next three ingredients; add to butter mixture, beating well. Stir in almonds. Divide dough in half; shape each portion into a 9x2-inch log on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 30 minutes or until firm. Cool on baking sheet 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely. Cut each log diagonally into 1/2-inch thick slices with a serrated knife using a gentle sawing motion. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350F 5-7 minutes. Turn cookies over, and bake 5-7 minutes longer. Remove to wire racks to cool.
     NOTES :
       1 1/2 tablespoons chocolate syrup may be substituted for the liqueur.
