2 dozen (serving size: 1 biscotto)

Savory biscotti are great for dipping into chili. Make these a couple days ahead, and store in an airtight container.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through pepper) in a large bowl. Combine milk, oil, and eggs; stir with a whisk. Add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring until well blended (dough will be dry and crumbly). Turn out onto a lightly floured surface; knead 8 times. Divide dough in half. Shape each portion into an 8-inch-long roll. Place rolls, 6 inches apart, on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray; flatten to 1-inch thickness. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Remove from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes on wire rack.

Step 3

Reduce oven temperature to 325°.

Step 4

Cut each roll diagonally into 12 (2/3-inch) slices. Place slices, cut sides down, on baking sheet. Bake at 325° for 10 minutes. Turn biscotti over; bake an additional 10 minutes (biscotti will be slightly soft in center but will harden as they cool). Remove from baking sheet; cool completely on wire rack.

This was a delicious recipe! It was not bland at all, just make sure to use a good Parm Regiano and very strong/old cheddar. Smells great when it is baking and tastes even better dunked in chili. Next time I will add some garlic powder and chives to add a little more flavour. Great recipe!

Made these to accompany chili this week, and they were not worth the trouble. I followed the recipe exactly except I doubled the ground red pepper to add more kick. They take an hour to make so weren't really good for a quick weeknight meal like I need to make, and they weren't very flavorful even with the additional ground red pepper. Also, they didn't get as crunchy as I expected biscotti to get. I won't be making these again.
