Nothing is more “Dunkable” than a Biscotti! It holds up beautifully when dunked in:
– Hot Chocolate
But is also yummy alone, especially if you like crunchy cookies, as appose to a cake-like cookie. Biscotti can be made out of such a variety of ingredients, but the delicate, exotic flavor of Sesame Seeds give these biscottis a memorable flavor.
The procedure is simple, and is really nothing more than a “twice-cooked cookie.”
– Sesame Seeds – 1 cup, either the pressed sesame seeds left over from making Nut/Seed Milk, or freshly ground
– Sugar – ¾ cup
– Egg – 1
– Butter – 1 stick, melted
– Flour – 2 cups
– Baking powder – ½ teaspoon
– Cinnamon – ½ teaspoon, or ¼ teaspoon Cardamom
– Salt – ¼ teaspoon
– Powdered sugar for final dusting
Mix all ingredients (except dusting sugar) until thick paste forms. Dump the entire sticky dough onto a sheet of parchment paper. Roll into a log, in the wrap. Chill (30 minutes or over night).
Oven: 350. Bake log (unwrapped) for 30 minutes. Cool.
Cut into ½ inch slices.
Cut side down on parchment (so they don’t stick, and clean-up is easy)
Bake 20/25 minutes or until golden. Dust Powdered sugar if you like, though yummy alone!
