Very few flavors are as easily associated with winter as cranberries. You eat cranberries for Thanksgiving and add them fruit cake for Christmas. Maybe it’s the cheerful red colors that make everyone think of Christmas, but when you add cranberries to your recipes, they automatically fit into your holiday plans.

What Is A Biscotti

The word “biscotti” actually comes from the Latin word,“biscoctus” which means“baked twice.” This is exactly how a biscotti is made!

Unlike many other confections/cookies, a biscotti must be first baked to set, then cut and finally baked one more time to get it to its final texture.

Biscotti is a really crispy breadstick that you can make in a bunch of different flavors.

Difference Between Italian and American Biscotti

Italian biscotti is what I made in this recipe. It’s crispy most people dunk it into their coffee to make it easier to chew.

American biscotti is softer and chewier. It tastes more like a cookie than a crunchy breadstick.

Ingredients

Should Biscotti Have Butter?

It all depends on your personal taste! I love adding either butter or vegetable oil because it gives my biscotti a softer texture.

However, if you are up for a crunchier, more traditional biscotti, then I highly suggest you omit that fat content.

Why did my Homemade Biscotti Crack?

When it comes to baking, it’s all about temperature! After baking your biscotti for the first round, allow it to cool before cutting. This can help with its texture and avoid any sort of cracking/breakage.
