If you’ve ever gone to any coffee shop ever you’ve probably have had or at least have seen biscotti.
With the help of google and thenibble.com I found out that these little cookies came from Italy and the name comes from Latin Bis – meaning twice and Cotto/coctum – meaning cooked/baked.
Very interesting stuff.
Since most biscotti contains nuts and (like I mentioned in a previous post) I’m in love with someone who is highly allergic to them, I’ve avoided them until now.
I found this recipe from http://www.crumbblog.com and I have to say I’m in love!
This recipe caught my eye because there’s also coffee (and coffee liquor!) in the dough. Though there are walnuts in this recipe, I just left them out.
You can find the recipe by clicking the link below:
Like I always do, I used whole wheat flour and flax seed mill. Besides that and throwing out the walnuts I followed the recipe from that link.
So you make the dough, bake it, let it cool, slice it, and bake it again.
I also used two teaspoons of instant coffee because I felt adventurous.
I’m not sure if it’s the right way to eat them but I loved dipping them in my coffee this morning.
The only thing I need to work on is making them crispy enough without breaking anyone’s teeth.
