Biscotti Story

A Chef Jackson York, CEC, AAC favorite!

In Italian, biscotto means twice (bis) cooked (cotto). Biscotti are baked twice in the historic tradition of Italy. First, the dough is shaped into a flattened log and baked. Once removed from the oven, the log is sliced into individual cookies then baked again. Biscotti cookies are perfect alone and great for dipping into coffee or wine.

However, I slice them on the bias and skip the second cooking. Thus making my biscotti a scotti! Still an excellent flavor but a softer bite! So when you go to slice your biscotti feel free to skip the second baking & try it Chef Jackson’s way. Soft or twice baked, you are sure to enjoy!
