BISCOTTI

Nothing is more “Dunkable” than a Biscotti! It holds up beautifully when dunked in:

  • Coffee/Espresso
  • Tea
  • 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.”

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • 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!
