Holiday Biscotti Recipes

Article Image

Biscotti are the perfect addition to a holiday cookie plate: their robust crunchiness is a contrast to many more delicate cookies, and while they may not look as fancy, they require far less fussing and styling. Plus, they’re one of the sturdiest, most packable cookies if you’re giving or even mailing them as gifts.

    Chocolate-Orange Biscotti

    These fragrant and chocolatey cookies are an inventive departure from more Christmasy-looking cookies while still being sparkly, festive, and full of delicious nuggets like hazelnuts, candied orange peel, and chocolate chunks. Another bonus for holiday giving: The biscotti are sturdy enough to travel well, arriving at their destination unbroken and as delicious as the day you baked them.

  • Recipe

    Classic Almond Biscotti

    These crisp, lightly sweet biscotti are traditional, but with the addition of lemon zest and vanilla and almond extracts for a flavor boost, plus baking powder to keep the cookies from being overly dense. The recipe easily doubles, so bake up an extra batch and share them with your loved ones.
