Anise and lemon biscotti

Perfect for enjoying with a cup of tea or coffee, these twice-baked Italian cookies are an irresistible treat.

Cooking Time: 1 hour 30 minutes
Serving: Makes approximately 24 biscotti

  • 250 grams all-purpose flour
  • 200 grams granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon aniseed
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, aniseed, lemon zest, and salt. Stir well to ensure even distribution of the ingredients.
  3. In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla extract together until well combined.
  4. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour the beaten egg mixture into it. Mix everything together using a wooden spoon until a sticky dough forms.
  5. Transfer the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead it gently for a few minutes until it becomes smooth and less sticky.
  6. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Shape each portion into a log, approximately 25 cm (10 inches) long and 5 cm (2 inches) wide. Place the logs onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving enough space between them.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the logs turn golden brown and are firm to the touch.
  8. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let the logs cool for about 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 150°C (300°F).
  9. Transfer the cooled logs onto a cutting board and use a sharp knife to slice them diagonally into 1 cm (0.4 inch) thick biscotti.
  10. Arrange the biscotti slices back onto the baking sheet, cut side down, and return them to the oven. Bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the biscotti become crisp and lightly golden.
  11. Once baked, remove the biscotti from the oven and allow them to cool completely on a wire rack.
  12. Serve the Aniseed Biscotti with your favourite hot beverage or store them in an airtight container for up to two weeks.

Enjoy the delightful crunch and aromatic flavour of these Aniseed Biscotti. They make a lovely homemade gift or a delicious treat to enjoy any time of the day. Happy baking!
