From Cruise to Kitchen: Nonna’s Biscotti

ROYAL CARIBBEAN SHARES THEIR RECIPE FOR THIS HEAVENLY COOKIE

Who doesn’t love completing a meal with a sweet ending? Guests aboard Royal Caribbean love ending their meal at Giovanni’s Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar with nonna’s (that’s grandmother in Italian) delectable biscotti cookies. In fact, they’re so popular, they figured you’d love to try a batch at home!

For an even sweeter treat, dip part of the biscotti in melted chocolate before it cools. Delicious!
 
Making Biscotti
 
INGREDIENTS:

  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 drops Anise flavoring
  • 3 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder

Biscotti
  
HOW TO MAKE:

  • Beat the eggs, sugar, oil and anise flavoring together.
  • Add flour and baking powder and mix well.
  • Place the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and form it into a lengthy loaf that is ½ inch thick.  Then slice the dough in half lengthwise.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes at 350 degrees until golden brown.
  • Let cool slightly and then slice into ½ inch slices.
  • Bake the slices, cut side up, for another 6 – 10 minutes, flip the cookies over and then bake for another 6 – 10 minutes.
  • If you want to dip your biscotti in melted chocolate, do that now.
  • Place your biscotti on a wire rack to cool.  Then dust with powdered sugar.
