franbiscotti2So this morning at the last minute, with a million things to do before my expected company I decided to try a new recipe for biscotti. Despite my better judgment I gathered my ingredients and supplies.  I actually was impressing myself as I mixed the ingredients while toggling through my iphone for the recipe. I even took some creative license and added a little Sambuca to the mix. 

A little side note: don’t eat liquored up cookie dough 9:30 in the morning on an empty stomach! 

Feeling very creative and overly confident I finished mixing.  As I looked down into my bowl I began to have some reservations. Being pressed for time I put my doubt aside and shaped the oily and grainy dough.  Somehow I thought I could still pull it off (I think the cookie dough got to my head).  After a few minutes of frustration, I concluded that in my haste I didn’t add the right amount of flour. I added another scoop and that did the trick. When they were done I sprinkled with powdered (confectionary) sugar and voila … Biscotti alla Fran (it’s mostly her recipe).  

My company enjoyed these tasty biscotti with a cup of coffee and they really were absolutely delicious. I hope you’ll try to make them. Here’s the recipe:

Instructions
  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit (I baked on 325 degrees convection). Using a kitchen mixer combine oil, eggs and sugar and mix together for 1 minute. Then add the vanilla, anise and/or any optional wet ingredients. While mixing sift flour and baking powder together and then add to mixture a little at a time. Once all combined a soft dough will form. Divide the dough into 6 equal parts (or so). Begin to shape into approximately 2" wide logs (if you prefer longer biscotti divide the dough into 4 sections and make 3" wide logs). Place the logs onto parchment lined paper (or silicone baking liner). Place 3 logs on the baking sheet. Put 2 logs side by side at leas 2" apart (try to avoid cramping the edges) and 1 log at the bottom of the pan horizontally.
  2. Bake approximately 15-20 minutes or until the edges start turning brown. Once out of the oven let sit a few minutes and then transfer to a cutting board. On the diagonal cut about 1/2" slices (1" if your making a larger biscotti). Then using a spatula transfer back to the pan and place back in the oven for no more than 5 minutes - I like to flip them half way through. When done remove from oven and transfer to cooling racks. Sprinkle cookies with confectionary/powdered sugar before serving.
Recipe Notes

Place the sliced biscotti onto wire cooling racks and then put onto baking sheet and back into the oven. This will allow the cookies to cook evenly on both sides without flipping.
Confectionary Sugar should be sprinkled on when completely cool or it will melt away
