Confetti Biscotti

When you're counting every penny, things like treats are few and far between. But this past weekend, I was itching to bake (and eat something sweet!) So with my 2 girls we came up with this recipe.

Confetti Biscotti

Makes 12-16 pieces

2 c. flour
2/3 c. sugar  (*used brown sugar, we ran out of sugar.)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 bag of semi-sweet mini chocolate chips (*had a few chips left, but used cookie sprinkles also, which gave us the new name!)
3 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract

In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, soda, salt and chips (and sprinkles.)

Add eggs and vanilla stirring until blended. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead 8-10 times. Form into a 2x16" log.

Place log on baking sheet coated with nonstick cooking spray.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove, cool 10 minutes. Reduce oven heat to 325 degrees.

Place on a cutting board and cut with serrated knife in a sawing motion into 1/2" slices. Place cut side up on the sheet, bake 10 minutes.

Turn slices over and bake an additional 10-12 minutes until golden. Place on wire rack to cool.

  2. I love biscotti! Perfect to go with a cup of coffee!

    One of the things that we always made when money was tight growing up was snickerdoodles. We seemed to always have the ingredients for those in the pantry. :)

  5. My cooking & recipe bookmarked folder is starting to really bulge, & I might begin to bulge, too, if I keep finding & trying all these great recipes. I think I will probably have these with a nice cup of tea.
