Chocolate Pistachio Biscotti: Softer than traditional biscotti, these are baked for a shorter time but deliver a rich chocolate flavor and are packed with delicious pistachio nuts.
What is Biscotti?
More Biscotti Recipes
- Don’t attempt to make biscotti on a humid day: The cookies will absorb too much of the air’s moisture and won’t be crispy.
- The dough should be a bit wet and sticky: If the dough is too dry, add water a teaspoon at a time.
- Space the logs apart on the baking sheet: They will spread
- Use a serrated knife: Using the right tool will make it so much easier to cut the biscotti. Also, don’t wait too long (about 10 minutes max) after you take it out of the over after the first bake.
- Bake longer for more crunch: if you want your biscotti to be crunchier, just keep them longer in the oven during the second bake. Make sure to check them often, you don’t want burnt biscotti.
CAN CHOCOLATE PISTACHIO BISCOTTI BE FROZEN?
- After the FIRST bake, slice the loaf. Freeze the slices in an airtight container. Defrost and second bake the cookies whenever you need fresh biscotti.
- Store fully baked cookies (including the second bake) in airtight containers and freeze.
