  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix with a spoon or spatula.
  • Moisten your hands lightly with oil and form dough into a rectangle or a log 0.5 inch thickness.
  • Bake in the middle rack for 20-25 minutes or until until the top and sides of the biscotti turns light brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool down for 10 minutes.
  • Cut into 1/2 inch slices, turn slices to one side and bake for another 6-8 minutes to brown.
  • Turn biscottis on the other side and repeat browning.
  • Let them cool down before serving. Store in an airtight container.


Note1: This solely depends on the size you like for your biscotti to be.
The original post was double this recipe but I decided to half the recipe this time. If you would like to make a big batch, just double EVERYTHING in the ingredients list including the baking powder.
