Moms Easy Biscotti

Moms EasyBiscotti recipe is one of the simplest ever! Though not really a true biscotti, in that the batter is thin enough to be poured into the baking pan, it is still quite good.  This Biscotti recipe is delightful to make because you can make it quickly……… when one of your kid’s tells you at 9pm that she needs 3 dozen cookies for school tomorrow.

This recipe contains nuts, but you will chop them first so that the finished biscotti will be easier to cut.  Other than that the recipe is pretty basic, made from ingredients that you would normally have around your home. If you don’t have walnuts you can substitute any other nut you have on hand.  You can, of course, stir in whatever extras you like, just remember that the more you add the less easy it becomes

If you want to make these even simpler to make then pour batter into two Biscotti pans that are about half the size of the full pan.  This will help the dough hold the Biscotti shape better and cool faster for removal and cutting.  The only thing about these pans is that they are not good for the second bake, so you will have to use a different baking sheet.
