I make this biscotti at least 6 times a year. after slicing the cookies and placing them back into the oven,I bake them on one side for 5 minutes and flip them over, bake for another 5 minutes. Instead of melting milk chocolate for the top, I use melted white chocolate with sprinkles of crushed peppermint.These are a big hit at friend and family gatherings
Hmmm not thrilled with this recipe. I went exactly by the directions and I’ve baked biscotti before. I’ve got dozens of eggnog biscotti waiting to be handed out. First off fully cooked and still taste doughy and then sliced and twice baked for the ones that made it through the slicing without breaking up. I’m still not thrilled with the flavor or texture of them. Plus I wouldn’t recommend using your stand mixer to add the peppermint because it leaves a bunch of nicks in it. I’ll toss these in the trash on the way out to buy a new paddle for my kitchen aid.
These sound great, but I have a question I'm hoping someone can answer before I try them: can I use anything other than shortening for the frosting? Thanks for any help!
The taste of these was terrific! As with other biscotti recipes, I seem to have difficulty getting the dough to hang together. Overall, delicious.
This is a delicious biscotti - great dunked in hot chocolate! Now that I found crushed peppermint at the store (my local Fleet Farm), I love them even more. (I always found it hard to get the peppermints crushed evenly - used food processor, hammer, etc - through the years and never had great luck.) It's a tradition in our house - just perfect!
We love this biscotti.
I love this recipe!! So does everyone else that tried it. I like this recipe so much compared to other biscotti recipes that I have found and tried that I have experimented and made many different flavors. I added orange extract, orange zest, and cranberries instead of the peppermint, it's been a big hit also! I added orange extract, orange zest, chocolate chips, yummo! I added the peppermint extract, and MINT chocolate chips. I tried white chocolate chips & cranberries. I used vanilla extract, some cinnamon, and CARAMEL bits (Kraft). I used vanilla extract, lots of cinnamon & drizzed the biscotti with Wilton EGGNOG. I am using this recipe and the variations I am trying to make lots of biscotti for Christmas gifts right now. THANK you so much for this fantastic recipe.
This is such a perfect, easy recipe!
For all recipes calling for crushed peppermint. I found a 10 oz. package of crushed peppermint candy. It's all so nicely sized, perfect for what they call for in this recipe.
