Quickie (almost!) Italian Almond Biscotti is a wonderfully simple way to enjoy the flavor of Italian Biscotti cookies with very little effort.

Biscotti (aka cantuccini) are delectable oblong-shaped twice-baked cookies perfect for dipping in Vin Santo. Personally, we love them in the fall months dipped in hot chocolate or coffee.
Now, there’s a little secret to these Biscotti, they actually use a Vanilla or White Cake mix. That’s how they’re made so quickly with very little effort! That doesn’t mean the cake mix has to come from the store though, if you prefer to make your own homemade pantry mixes, you can use that instead.

Also, the dough freezes well so they can be cooked last minute for a light dessert during the busy work week, you must use it within 45 days.

How to Make Quickie (almost!) Italian Almond Biscotti

If you’d like to add bits of dried fruit to this add up to 1/2 cup of dried cherries, cranberries, chopped dried apricots, or chopped dried figs.

    • I’ve never tried cooking with a sugarless cake mix, so I don’t know what the texture & consistency would be in the end product. If you give it a try come back and let us know how they turned out.
