Time for Anicini (Anise Biscotti)

December 2, 2012 - 4:46pm -- linder

Christmas time is coming, time for cookie baking galore.  Anise biscotti are one of my favorites - if you want to gild the lily, dip them in melted dark chocolate after they've been completely baked (twice) and cool them on parchment paper -heavenly.  I use a recipe form Franco Galli's The Il Fornaio Baking Book - they are tasty with lots of almonds and anise.  Remind me so much of my Grandma and a glass of anisette.

Anicini

2 1/3 cups AP flour

1 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1 TBSP. anise seeds

1 1/2 c. sliced raw almonds

Candied Fruit is often used in desserts in Italy. Candied fruit biscotti is a colorful addition to a Christmas biscotti tray.

I added  cranberries to a biscotti recipe of my grandmothers making it part of our Thanksgiving dessert selection. We always add a little of our Italian heritage to each course of our dinner. Being in the middle of all the cranberry bogs on Cape Cod made it even more special this year.
