Recipe Tag Directions:
1 package Biscotti Mix
3 large eggs
1/2 cup butter -- melted
1/2 teaspoon anise extract
1 large egg -- separated.
Preheat the oven to 375 F.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the mix with 3 eggs, butter, anise extract, and an additional egg yolk from the separated egg.
Beat on low speed, until the dough
is smooth. Roll the dough into two 12" to 14" logs, about 3" wide.
Place the logs on a greased cookie sheet. Brush the logs with the reserved egg white. Bake 30 minutes, or until the biscotti are golden brown. Remove the biscotti from the oven.
Reduce the oven temperature to 325 F. Cut the biscotti on the diagonal into 1/2" slices. Lay the slices on their sides, and return the biscotti to the oven. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on wire racks, and store in airtight containers. Makes approximately
2 dozen cookies.
