Gluten Free Biscotti

Posted on: December 20, 2011

These Bicottis are so good and it makes a big batch. Freeze them and save for later or better yet, bag them up in gifty bags and give away as gifts!

Recipe:

Gluten Free Biscotti

Preheat oven to 350 and grease a jelly roll pan or cookie sheet with lip on all sides.

1 package gluten-free cake mix [more about flavors below]
5 eggs
¾ cup oil [or melted and cooled butter]
2 tablespoons gluten-free extracts
2 cup toasted nuts [optional]***
1 cup dried fruits [optional]***

Combine all ingredients. Pour into jelly roll pan and bake for 20 to 30 min until tests done. Remove from oven, but keep oven on. Slice cookies into thirds [the long way] and across in ½ inch slices. Remove half,  and spread out on another jelly roll pan [un-greased] and put back in oven for 3 to 10 min, until golden. Cool and store in air-right containers for one week at room temp or a month in freezer!

I did a white cake with sliced almonds, dried cherries and grand-marnier for the flavouring. Other ideas:

  • chocolate cake with peanuts/ kahlua or banana liqueur for flavour
  • white cake with apricots/pecan and vanilla extract
  • white cake with lemon flavour, poppy seeds and dried blueberries
  • chocolate cake with walnuts and maple flavour and raisins
  • Chocolate with cherry brandy, dried cherries and pecans
  • white cake with orange peel, dried cranberries and almonds.

I could go on forever but think of your favourite flavouring, what is it? Ok, now what fruit do you enjoy? There are so many dried fruits available now and then toss in a nut, also many options! You could make one batch into two different flavours if you wanted to! Have fun with it and I’d love to hear what you think!!
