“Biscotti” means twice-baked in English, and is an Italian cookie. Baking these oblong-shaped cookies twice makes them extra crispy, and perfect for dunking in hot drinks, or milk.

For Cinnamon Raisin Biscotti, you’ll need:

  • vegetable oil
  • caster/granulated sugar
  • egg
  • vanilla extract
  • plain/all-purpose flour
  • baking powder
  • salt
  • ground cinnamon
  • ground nutmeg
  • raisins

To make this Cinnamon Raisin Biscotti recipe, simply whisk together the oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla in one bowl, and the rest of the ingredients in another bowl.

Mix both mixtures together to form a soft cookie dough. Transfer the dough to a baking tray lined with parchment or a silicone mat, and shape into a roll, about 25cm (10″) long. Gently press to flatten to a depth of 2cm ( 3/4″).

Bake for about 20 minutes until lightly browned. Cool slightly, then carefully cut into 1cm slices. Place the slices back on the baking tray, cut side up, and bake for a further 5 minutes until crisp. Repeat with the other side. This is the twice-baking part. 🙂

Aaaand you’re done!
