  2. Fruit & Nut Biscotti Recipe

Nothing is more iconic with a cup of coffee than a great piece of biscotti. Sadly, a lot of coffee shop varieties are too dry and have no flavor. Now you can make your own at home! It’s easy, fresh, and utterly delicious. You never need to buy a piece of biscotti again!

Once cooled, the biscotti will be dry and perfect for dunking into a hot cup of coffee. This recipe can be adapted with different fruits, nuts, and flavorings. Simple, rustic, and delicious.

  • Remove from oven and slide onto a cutting board and slice into one-inch pieces on a diagonal. Place back on baking sheets, cut side down, and bake at 325°F for 12-15 minutes longer, watching closely so they do not burn (check the bottoms for burning).
