Easy Peasy Biscotti!

I’ve had a few requests for the Biscotti Recipe.. I’m happy to oblige, its so easy, and very yummy! 

Cake Mix Biscotti

1 box (18.25 ounce size) Cake Mix.  Now, get creative.. I’ve used Lemon, Orange Supreme, Devil’s Food, Vanilla (especially good as a base.. I’ve put a package of butterscotch instant pudding in there.. or pistachio)

1 cup flour

2 eggs (slightly beaten) 
1 stick butter, melted

3/4 cup Chocolate Chips, Nuts, Coconut, dried cherries or cranberries.. anything!
Chocolate chips, Butterscotch, Peanut Butter, White Chocolate.. whatever.. melt them in the microwave in a baggie.. this is to drizzle on top of the cooled biscotti.. I guess around 1/2 cup.

 

 

 

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, flour, eggs and melted butter; (and pudding pouch if you are using one)  beat with an electric mixer until dough comes together. Use your hands to knead in the extra’s. Transfer dough to your baking sheet and shape into a 13- by 3-inch rectangle- I call it a log.  The wider your log, the longer your biscotti will be.. but you won’t get as many.  Bake 35 minutes. Let cool on pan about 30 minutes, then slice into 1/2- to 3/4-inch-thick slices, slicing across the width of the log.

Arrange slices cut-side down on both baking sheets. Bake 15 minutes, reduce oven heat to 200 degrees and bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes, or until biscotti are dry. Let cool completely. (They will harden more as they cool.)

Then melt your chips if you are using them.. snip off the end, then drizzle over the biscotti.  Keep in an airtight container.  These will be okay for a couple of weeks.. if they last that long!

I’m going to make some Black Forest ones today.. Chocolate Fudge with dried cherries.. YUM!!!!  If you come up with any yummy combo’s leave me a message.. We LOVE this cookie.. and I like to make a variety of flavors for Christmas giving!
