Biscotti cookies are a traditional twice baked Italian cookie. These Holiday Biscotti Cookies are perfect for holiday cookie trays!

My favorite time of the year is here! It’s cookie season! At the beginning of the holiday season I sit down with a pen and paper and start writing out my cookie menu for Christmas.

By the time the holidays are over, I will have baked close to 100 cookies! Including this Holiday Biscotti Recipe.

Of course, some of these cookies are left for Santa, but I’ve found that a simple and thoughtful way to show my appreciation to my neighbors, the dedicated teachers at my kids’ schools, the bus drivers who get my kids safely to and from school each day or to my postal workers is through my homemade holiday cookies.

Is there anything better than opening up a container full of freshly baked cookies? I think not! That whiff of sugar and cheer just brings a smile to anyone’s mouth!

I love gifting these delicious Holiday Biscotti Cookies! They are so versatile too. Swap out the vanilla extract for almond extract, or add chocolate chips or slivered almonds to the batter.biscotti cookies on a coffee cup

How to make my Holiday Biscotti Cookies Recipe

What you’ll need:

butter
sugar
salt
vanilla extract
baking powder
2 large eggs
all-purpose flour
melting chocolate
sprinkles

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. 

In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, sugar, salt, vanilla, and baking powder until creamy. 

Beat in the eggs.

Add the flour and mix on low (dough will be sticky).

Scoop the dough onto the sheet pan and pat it into a rectangle about a foot long and a few inches wide. 

Bake 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and let cool for about a half hour. 

Reduce the oven heat to 325°F.

Transfer the biscotti to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, lightly slice into slices about 1/2″ wide. Place each biscotti onto the baking sheet. 

Bake for an additional 30 minutes.

Let your biscotti cookies cool before dipping in chocolate. 

In the microwave, melt your chocolate in 30 second intervals.

Dip the biscotti in melted chocolate and add sprinkles. 

Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
