Butter Brickle Biscotti

by on October 23, 2010 · 11 comments


This biscotti recipe is from the King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking Book. It had been a while since I’d used the book, but now that I have a grain mill I plan to keep the book in the kitchen where it belongs. While I’m not exactly a health nut, I really enjoy the taste and texture of different types of flour, and in this case, was curious how wheat flour would taste in a toffee studded biscotti. The best I can describe this cookie is that it’s like taking a Heath Bar, removing the chocolate, adding a little wheat and turning it into biscotti. Who knew that wheat and toffee were such a good combo? Oh, the KA people. Of course.

Cinnamon Roll Biscotti

First, I tried making the cinnamon roll dough as biscotti. It worked perfectly on my first try. The biscotti were crispy on the outside and a little softer in the center than typical Italian biscotti, but they still tasted good and were kind fun to make.

My dad came over for dinner last night which gave us a good excuse to open the Vin Santo we bought at Fattoria San Michele a Torri.  My dad had never heard of Vin Santo, but was pretty excited about trying it since he’d never dipped cookies in wine before. Of course that meant I […]

As for me, I liked this better than the previous gingerbread biscotti. It […]

The biscotti/cantuccini obsession continues, and early this week I made yet another batch.  Because it seemed like an interesting departure from the usual almond flavor, I chose “gingerbread biscotti” from  Along with making the house smell good, the biscotti were satisfying on so many levels that I’ll probably test a few different recipes to find the perfect “ginger […]
