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