Original recipe yields 4 dozen

Directions

  1. Sift flour and measure. Resift with sugar and baking powder onto a flat surface. Cut shortening into dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.
  2. Make a well in flour and break eggs into it. Add vanilla, and knead dough well for about 5 minutes until it is smooth, adding a little more flour if dough seems to soft and sticky.
  3. Pinch off bits of dough about the size of an apricot, and form into desired shapes. Cookies may be baked as rings, strips, or in letters, such as S.
  4. Place 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheet and bake in hot 450 degree F (230 degrees C) oven for 10 minutes, until golden brown. Watch carefully, because they burn easily.

A very bland and unflavorful, even for a biscotti. It lacks the cruncy texture that makes these dunking cookies so great with cappichinos. I have made many different kinds of biscotti, this was not what I concider a true biscotti.

It WAS as basic as you can get. I loved it. My cookies turned out great. I found that using Butter Crisco made the dough easier to handle and gave the cookies a nice flavor.
