In Italy it means twice baked. In Canada and the US it means a twice baked biscuit.
The origin of it is said to date back to the time of Columbus. They were eaten by sailors because they lasted so long at sea without going bad. I am sure they did not have the variety of flavors that we enjoy today.
In Canada and the US it is enjoyed by thousands in coffee shops every where. We prefer to dip it in our coffee. In Italy they enjoy dipping it in a sweet wine.
Recipes for biscotti are made with a stiff sticky dough. It is then shaped by hand into long slabs. Baked once on a baking sheet. Allowed to cool then sliced on a diagonal and baked again. The longer they bake, the harder they become.
Always bake them on the middle rack of your oven.
They are best made with an electric stand mixer. The dough is so thick. Hand held mixers don't have enough power to mix the dough.
There is no end to the variety of homemade recipes. You can add fruit, nuts, spices, even candies if you like. You can sprinkle on some nuts before you bake them. Dip them in chocolate. Explore and discover your favorite.
Wrap them individually in plastic wrap. Place them in a lined wicker basket with two coffee mugs, some exotic Italian blend coffee, and you have the perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life.
So go ahead... make some coffee. Sit back, grab one and enjoy with some friends.
