SESAME BISCOTTI

Nothing is more “Dunkable” than a Biscotti! It holds up beautifully when dunked in:

-       Coffee/Espresso

-       Tea

-       Hot Chocolate

But is also yummy alone, especially if you like crunchy cookies, as apposed 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 biscotti 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 sesame milk, or freshly ground

-       Sugar – ¾ cup

-       Egg - 1

-       Butter – 1 stick melted

-       Flour – 2 cups

-       Baking powder – ½ teaspoon

-       Cinnamon – ½ teaspoon (or your favorite spice)

-       Salt – ¼ teaspoon

Mix all ingredients until thick paste forms. Dump the entire sticky dough onto a sheet of parchment paper, plastic wrap, or foil. 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!
