Orange-Sesame Biscotti

Biscotti make a great holiday gift. The best way to package them is in a clear plastic airtight container; they store longer. To personalize the gift, use paint markers and ribbon to decorate.

Cooking Light NOVEMBER 1996

  • Yield: 36 servings (serving size: 1 cookie)


  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 large egg white
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons grated orange rind
  • 1 tablespoon thawed orange juice concentrate, undiluted
  • Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 325°.

Combine first 7 ingredients in a bowl. Stir well; set aside. Combine eggs, egg white, vanilla, orange rind, and orange juice in a large bowl, and stir with a whisk. Add flour mixture, and stir until well-blended.

Turn dough out onto a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Shape dough into two 13-inch-long rolls; flatten to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 325° for 25 minutes or until firm to the touch. Remove rolls from baking sheet; let cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.

Reduce oven temperature to 275°.

Cut each roll diagonally into 18 (1/2-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Bake at 275° for 40 minutes (cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; let cool completely on wire rack.
