Anise Biscotti

One of my all-time favorite desserts is Anise Biscotti or Anisette Toast. And in my younger years, that would be my favorite nighttime snack with a cup of tea or coffee. I hadn't made these in a while and was so glad I added them to this years baking theme because I just love the simple licorice flavor of anise in this light, crunchy dessert.  

Here is Holiday Baking recipe #7...

Anise Biscotti
2 c. All-Purpose Flour
1 c. Granulated Sugar
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda

1 1/2 tsp. Anise Seeds
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
3 Large Eggs
Cooking Spray

1. In a bowl, mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and anise seeds until well blended. 
2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. 
3. Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix well until all of the ingredients have been incorporated.  

4. Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is no longer sticky, then form two, 12” long log shapes and flatten down so that it is no higher than 1”. 
5. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, add the dough and bake at 325° F for 30 minutes. 
6. Remove from oven and let cool, then slice diagonally into 1/2" thick slices and put them back on the baking sheet.
7. Bake an additional 8-10 minutes per side, then remove from the oven. Let cool and allow to harden before serving. Makes 2 1/2 dz.
