I followed the recipe and they came out great. I did sprinkle the top with powdered sugar. They looked very festive. Perfect for a holiday brunch
I followed the recipe exactly as written. The dough came together nice. But nobody can taste any of the ingredients – they didn’t even smell nice when they were in the oven. Glad I didn’t double the recipe. Onward!
what can you use for nut free?
I used tahini.
I honestly don’t know where I went wrong here, but mine was a massive fail. I needed an extra full cup of flour to get it to hold together at all, let alone be stiff enough to knead. It was painfully sweet. (I used cane sugar). I’ll try again today.
I made these tonight, and they came out wonderfully. I am waiting for them to cool off a bit so I can eat a few more before bedtime. These are a great snack with tea or coffee.
Definitely going to try this….but….not bake them to hard stage. My Italian Nonna made them all the time but they were slightly crisp on the outside and moist inside. SO nice to have a healthy version.
I made these this afternoon and followed the recipe to the letter using date sugar as the dry sweetener. The biscotti turned out beautifully and were delicious. They smelled lovely while they were cooking and one or two didn’t make it back to the oven for their second bake as I just had to test them. I will definitely make them again and wouldn’t hesitate to offer them to guests. They were easy to make too.
Can gluten-free oat flour be substituted for wheat flour?
I would think you could use Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten free flour very nicely. You may need to adjust the quantity of flour so that you have a nice dough to work with.
I would think it’s fine as we don’t need the gluten in this recipe
They probably went with this flour as it’s « whole « and not bleached.
Go for gluten free and enjoy them
I wish they had answered your question because I would like to make them, but I’m gluten sensitive.
Del, these are scrumptious! It is SEW hard to eat just one. And these make the perfect hostess gift.
