The Recipe How-To

Treat yourself to a cozy and comforting coffee experience with our biscotti recipe.

Step 1: Preheat the oven

First things first, preheat your oven to 350°F. This will ensure that your Biscotti Coffee is cooked at the right temperature and is perfectly crispy.

Step 2: Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

Grab a baking sheet and line it with parchment paper. This will prevent your biscotti from sticking to the pan and ultimately ruining your tasty coffee treat.

Step 3: Mix together the wet ingredients

In a medium-sized mixing bowl, mix together 2 large eggs, ½ cup sugar, 2 tablespoons instant espresso, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Use a whisk or hand mixer to combine all of the ingredients together until the mixture is smooth.

Step 4: Mix together the dry ingredients

In another mixing bowl, combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt. You can also add in any additional flavors such as chocolate chips or cinnamon.

Step 5: Combine both mixtures together

Slowly add the dry mixture into the wet mixture bowl while stirring continuously until everything is well combined.

Step 6: Form dough

Knead dough that’s formed and their shape depends entirely on what you want. You can either decide to make them into round or logs depending on preference. Once done place them onto lined baking sheets.

Step 7: Bake for 20-25 minutes

Carefully place the baking sheet into the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Do not overcook because you still need to bake it again after slicing.

Remove from oven and let cool before slicing into pieces of your desired thickness.

Step 8: Second bake

Arrange back slice biscuit pieces onto baking sheet back and bake again until crispy but no longer than 10 minutes.

Remove from oven and let it cool before enjoying your freshly baked Biscotti Coffee!

– Boozy infusion: Add a touch of elegance by substituting Baileys Irish Cream or Kahlua for water when making your biscotti dough.

One of the great things about biscotti is that it’s a fabulous make-ahead treat. These cookies stay fresh for up to two weeks when stored correctly, making them a fantastic choice for gift-giving or holiday entertaining.

To store biscotti, you should wait for them to cool completely before wrapping them in plastic wrap and keeping them in an airtight container at room temperature. If you’ve made different flavors of biscotti, then it’s a good idea to store each flavor separately to preserve their unique flavors.

If you want your biscotti to be even fresher, you can store them in a freezer-safe container or ziplock bag in the freezer for up to 3 months. Make sure to label the container with the date so you can easily know how long they’ve been stored.

To reheat biscotti, preheat your oven to 350°F and place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 5-7 minutes until they’re crispy and fragrant. Alternatively, if you prefer a softer texture, microwave them for about 10 seconds.

One pro tip is to dip the end of the biscotti in melted chocolate before storing. This will help coat and protect the ends from becoming too hard before serving.

By following these simple steps, you can always have fresh, delicious coffee biscotti ready for a quick snack or whenever you want to take your coffee or tea break up a notch!

Now that you’ve got the ingredients and the recipe for the perfect biscotti coffee nailed down, it’s time to talk about the tips and tricks required to ensure your final result is nothing short of spectacular. Here are a few nuggets of wisdom to help you on your way:

Tip #1: Proper Storage

Biscotti should be stored in an airtight container once it’s cooled off completely, especially if you intend to keep it for an extended period of time. I recommend keeping them in the fridge or freezer because they will last longer this way.

Tip #2: Be Precise With Your Measurements

Biscotti cookies require accurate measurements for each ingredient. Make sure you use a measuring cup or a weight scale to ensure consistent results every time. If your ratios are off, your biscuits won’t turn out well, so be sure to follow your recipe correctly.

Tip #3: Patience is Key

One of the key tipping points for success is patience when mixing the ingredients. Don’t rush through this step as it’s critical to creating a consistent dough mix. Ensure that you mix each ingredient thoroughly before moving onto the next.

Tip #4: Keep Your Biscuits Uniform

Looking great adds to the overall feel and enjoyment of having biscuits with coffee or tea. To achieve uniform results, slice each biscuit such that they’re all equal in size (if not the same shape). This will create a cohesive and professional-looking display.

Tip #5: Experiment with Different Flavors

While there is nothing quite like a classic biscotti cookie, experimenting with different flavors can take these cookies to another level. You can add different toppings like cinnamon chips or flavorings like Bailey’s Irish cream or Kahlua — don’t be afraid to make it unique and enjoyable!

Are you supposed to dip biscotti in coffee?

One of the most beloved coffee pairings all over the world is biscotti. Originating from Italy, biscotti is crafted to be flawlessly dunked in coffee. The satisfying sound and texture of dipping biscotti in coffee creates an unparalleled experience.

Why is biscotti good with coffee?

Biscotti and coffee make for an ideal match as the dry and crispy texture of the former wonderfully contrasts the creamy richness of the latter. Together, they create a scrumptious and fulfilling blend that always leaves me wanting more.

Does biscotti go with tea or coffee?

In this article, we will delve into the world of the classic Italian treat, biscotti. Also called cantucci, biscotti are famous for their durable texture and extended shelf life. These cookies make for a delightful snack alongside a cup of coffee or tea, or as a sweet garnish for desserts when served with wine.

What is the secret to making biscotti?

When making biscotti, it’s important to keep in mind a few key tips for achieving a perfectly baked batch. Firstly, after the first bake, make sure to allow the biscotti to cool for just 10 minutes before moving on to the next step. This will help them retain their shape and texture. Secondly, when cutting the biscotti, it’s best to use a serrated knife and utilize a sawing motion to ensure clean, even cuts. During the second bake, it’s crucial to flip the biscotti so that both sides have a chance to bake evenly. Finally, once the biscotti has been cut and baked a second time, transfer it to a wire rack to cool completely and avoid any texture mishaps.
