Anisette Biscotti

  • Author: Nonna's Way
  • Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes


An anise flavoured biscotti that’s super quick and easy to make. A great introduction to biscotti making!


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp anise extract
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour


  1. Beat the eggs, sugar, oil, and anise extract together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Combine the flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl.
  3. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture a little at a time while mixing until all the flour is incorporated into a soft dough.
  4. Cover with food-safe plastic wrap and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
  5. Heat oven to 350 and prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  6. Remove dough from fridge and divide into 2 or 3 portions. Form each portion into a thick log and place onto baking tray.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes or just until they begin to turn a golden colour.
  8. Remove from the oven and as soon as you can touch the loaves, carefully transfer to a cutting board and cut them into diagonal strips.
  9. Place them back on the baking pan and bake for another 10 minutes.
  10. Remove from oven and let cool.


The dough is quite soft. The refrigeration time is a must, to make this dough workable. These biscotti freeze well in freezer safe bags or air tight containers.
