Sour Cream Biscotti Recipe

I got this recipe from my uncle's mother. These crisp cookies are perfect for dunking in milk or coffee.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 45 min. + cooling YIELD:30 servings


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons almond or vanilla extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda


  • 1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in sour cream and extract. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture.
  • 2. Line two baking sheets with foil; grease the foil. Divide dough into thirds. On a floured surface, shape dough into three 8-in. x 2-1/2-in. x 3/4-in. loaves; place on foil. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until golden. Remove from the oven. Lift loaves with foil onto a wire rack; cool for 15 minutes.
  • 3. Place on a cutting board; using a serrated knife, slice diagonally 3/4 in. thick. Place slices, cut side down, on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8-10 minutes or until golden. Turn cookies over; bake 10 minutes longer. Cool on wire racks. Store in an airtight container. Yield: about 2-1/2 dozen.

"A basic recipe. Simple. Good. I drizzled them with melted chocolate and served them with homemade hot chocolate."
