Grandma Flora's


Prep Time: 15 mins   Baking Time: ~40 mins

This was a recipe of my Grandma Flora's & she & I would make them all the time together. She would tell me that I was the best at shaping the loaves & it was always so special.
No swaps here, sharing the original recipe. Just a few ingredients but the patience & effort comes in baking the cookies.
Biscotti in Italian means twice cooked so after baking the loaves for 20 minutes, the cookies get sliced & then baked again on each side. Well worth the time because they are truly delicious. My favorite to dunk in my coffee. I've since been adding some chocolate & chopped nuts to give them a little flair, but personally, I like them plain best!


  • 3 eggs

  • 1 c sugar

  • 1 c oil

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 3 1/2 c flour

  • 2 tsp baking powder

  • pinch of salt

  • 3/4-1 c nuts ground fine (save a little if dipping in chocolate)


  1. Preheat oven to 350.

  2. Beat the eggs, sugar, oil & vanilla until well combined

  3. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients & then gradually add to the wet mixture.

  4. Transfer to floured board & knead until smooth.

  5. Separate into 2 parts & place both on oiled cookie sheet shaping into 2 loaves the length of the sheet.

  6. Bake for 20 min.

  7. Remove, allow to cool & cut into slices.

  8. Place on sides, return to oven for toasting ~10 mins.

  9. Remove again, turn slices on opposite side & toast another ~10 mins.

  10. Remove & cool.

  11. If dipping in chocolate, allow to cool completely to prevent crumbling.

  12. While chocolate is still warm, sprinkle nut on top.

  13. Place in the fridge to set.

  14. ENJOY!
