Anise Biscotti is a licorice flavored Italian cookie with a crunchy outside and a soft inside that’s perfect for dunking into your favorite hot beverage.
One of my all-time favorite desserts is Anise Biscotti or Anisette Toast. And in my younger years, that would be my favorite nighttime snack with a cup of tea or coffee. I hadn’t made these in a while and was so glad I added them to this years baking theme because I just love the simple licorice flavor of anise in this light, crunchy dessert.Anise Biscotti; a licorice flavored Italian #cookie.

Anise Biscotti is a licorice flavored Italian cookie with a crunchy outside and a soft inside that's perfect for dunking into your favorite hot beverage.
- 2 c . All-Purpose Flour

- 1/2 tsp . Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp . Baking Soda
- 1 1/2 tsp . Anise Seeds
- 1 tsp . Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 325° F.
Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and anise seeds in a large bowl until well blended.
In a separate smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla.
- Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture and mix well until all of the ingredients have been incorporated.
Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead until the dough is no longer sticky; then form two, 12-inch long logs and flatten them down so that it is no higher than 1”.
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, add the dough and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool; then slice diagonally into 1/2" thick slices and put them back on the baking sheet.
Bake for an additional 8-10 minutes per side; then remove from the oven. Let cool and allow to harden before serving.
