Orange and Walnut Biscotti


Crisp, nutty and delicious, these Orange and Walnut Biscotti are bound to impress! Biscotti are little Italian biscuits that are usually made with almonds but I make mine with walnuts – just my personal preference, I love walnuts! I think these are the perfect way to end a meal: serving coffee or tea and a biscotti on the side.

If I’m hosting a dinner party, I always bake a batch of these in advance as a classy sweet treat to finish a special evening. This recipe is very easy to follow and makes enough for a group of friends, plus more for you to snack on over the next few days! And of course, these are easy to customize  – why not try a lemon zest and almond version? Or crushed cardamom and pistachio?

Steps to make Orange and Walnut Biscotti


Heat the oven and prepare a baking sheet


Preheat the oven to 340°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar and baking powder.


Add the eggs


Add the eggs one at a time, stirring into the flour mixture until a dough forms.


Add the nuts and zest


Add the chopped nuts and orange zest and stir until evenly distributed.


Roll the dough


Lightly dust a work surface with flour. Gently knead the dough for 1-2 minutes, then divide into two. Roll each section of dough into a log about 10 inches long. Lay the rolls on the baking sheet.


Bake the dough


Bake the rolls of dough for 25 minutes.


Slice the biscotti


Take the rolls out of the oven and leave to cool for 1-2 minutes. Then slice the rolls into biscuits about 3/4 inch thick and lay them out on the baking sheet.

Put the biscotti into the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes until turning golden brown. Turn each of them over and bake for a further 5-7 minutes.

Anisette toast had a better crunch than this one and the orange in this is overwhelming too.

Zoya Emore

Super crunchy and delicious I'd recommend serving this with some melted butter and nutella on the top for a sweeter taste :)

Mercy Abramson

Took a while to make but it was worth it for sure.

Raylynn Hoffstadt

Italian food is legit my top 10 when it comes to cultured, I personally love Mexican and French as well but all the Italian ones usually involve some amazing pasta sauces or breads that can be used for both dessert or a savory snack like this one.

Sandra Koechner

Made a sandwich from this bread for lunch it was good.

Karissa Gilford

Huge crowd pleaser my family devoured all of it on the same day with marshmellow fluff.

Linnea Lavoy

Walnuts aren't really my thing so I swapped them out for almonds instead.




Perfect dessert!
