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!
