Anisette Toast Biscotti


These Anisette Toast instantly transport me back to the village in Tuscany where I first tasted them. They are light and crunchy and they contain a secret ingredient – a hint of anise flavoring. These biscotti are so versatile – they are perfect with an espresso after a meal or for a mid-morning snack.

The Anisette Toast are twice-baked which gives them their signature crunch, and they are best when dunked in a drink. This recipe is so simple – you will just need flour, baking powder, baking soda, butter, sugar eggs and anise extract. The hardest thing is waiting for them to cool before you can tuck in!

To make Anisette Toast, you will need the following ingredients:

So, how to make Anisette Toast?

Steps to make Anisette Toast Biscotti


Heat the oven and prepare 2 baking sheets


Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets.


Mix the dry ingredients


Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.


Combine the butter and sugar


Beat the butter and sugar together in a large bowl.


Add the eggs and the anise extract


Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Beat in the anise extract along with the last egg.


Combine the dry ingredients with the batter


Add the flour mixture to the batter slowly, until just combined.


Divide and shape the dough


Divide the biscotti dough in two and shape them into 1/2-inch thick slabs. Place each one on the prepared baking sheets.




Bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from the oven when each slab feels firm to the touch and is golden.


Leave to cool


Leave the biscotti slabs to cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes.


Slice into oblong shapes


When they are cool to the touch, cut each slab into 3/4-inch thick oblong slices. Place them back on the baking sheets with the cut side facing down.


Bake for a second time


Put the biscotti back in the oven and bake for 10-20 minutes. Turn once after 5-10 minutes when the underside turns golden.


Allow to cool


Tip the biscotti onto a wire rack and leave to cool completely.

Italian bread is very good with some melted cheese and pasta for the maincourse, this is perfect to dip in some marinara sauce as well.

Could not for the life of me find anise extract there something I can replace it with at all?

I didnt realize bread can be put in a vegetarian category lol but it was delicious for sure.

I'm actually shocked that this bread doesn't take too long to make.. 5 stars just for the short amount of time compared to the 2-3 hour banana breads.

Pretty good and the right amount of crunchyness.

Chocolate chips is a good addition if you want to make this bread sweet you can also try to add a bit of cinnamon for extra sweetness.
