• Several years ago my sister (Jan) and myself where playing with Biscotti recipes. We came up with a very easy and simple way to make biscotti ( a semi sweet scone like bisquit), we used about 4 cups Bisquick and about 1 cup sugar (use what fits your taste),1 cup chopped pecans and 1 cup chopped dried cranberries. Mix the ingredients well (With enough milk to make a thick dough) and put on a non stick baking sheet. Form the dough into a half moon shape and bake. Let cool, slice and drizzle with an icing made from melted chocolate or powdered sugar, vanilla and milk mixed thick ( imperial icing). We made several kinds and this is the one we liked best. I hope you try this easy way, it is good. shopping list
  • I found a hard biscotti recipe and you can see it below and it is the real way to make biscotti. shopping list
  • We didn't cook the biscotti twice, because we liked it baked once. Biscotti is baked once whole and then sliced and baked again. It comes out pretty crisp. shopping list

    Wow! this looks like a cool thing to try! I made real (hard) biscotti last Christmas. Mailed to my family. They did not like them. Maybe the soft way is what I should do? I Love Hard Biscotti. (and cafe)

    thank you very much. 555555555555
