Okay…let’s talk about, vanilla cake batter biscotti.

Biscotti are pretty easy to make and they taste great with coffee, tea and a glass of milk.  I made a batch of these and was able to share, with one of our neighbors. This delicious batch of biscotti, has vanilla cake batter, sprinkles and whole wheat white flour, baked in them. They get dipped, in melted vanilla candy coating. And topped with more, sprinkles!

A quick, “how to” on making biscotti.

The process for making biscotti starts off the same as any cookie recipe.  You make a cookie dough and instead if scooping out cookie dough balls, you will form the dough into two loaves.  Roughly 11 – 15 inches long and 3 – 4 inches wide.  Leave plenty of space in between the loaves, they will puff up and spread out.  Use a non-stick cooking mat.

Bake the the loaves for 25 minutes and allow to slightly cool.  Then slice the loaves into 3/4 inch slices, with a serrated knife.

Lay the biscotti cookies on their sides and bake for 11 minutes.  Flip them and bake another 11 minutes.  You want a dry cookie that will hold up to being dunked into hot beverages.  After the baking process, allow to completely cool.  Then dip or spread melted vanilla candy coating on the tops or bottoms of the biscotti.  Sprinkle on the sprinkles and let the candy coating dry.
