These biscotti are easy, quick, and my favorite Italian cookies. My friend at work gave me this simple, no-frills recipe.
- white sugar : 1 cup
- vegetable oil : 0.5 cup
- eggs : 3 piece
- anise extract, or 3 drops anise oil : 1 Tbsp
- all-purpose flour : 3.25 cups
- baking powder : 1 Tbsp
Stages of cooking
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
Beat together sugar, oil, eggs, and anise extract in a medium bowl until well-blended. Combine flour and baking powder in a separate bowl; stir into egg mixture to form a heavy dough.
Divide dough into two equal pieces. Form each piece into a log the length of a cookie sheet. Place one log on each of the prepared sheets; and press dough down to 1/2-inch thickness.
Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes. Transfer logs to wire racks; let sit until cool enough to handle, about 15 minutes.
Slice each log crosswise into about eighteen 1/2-inch-thick slices. Place slices cut-sides up back on the cookie sheets.
Bake until lightly toasted and golden brown, 6 to 10 minutes per side.
