A favorite recipe from my Auntie Florence. How many cups of coffee did we share over a plate of these wonderful "dunkers"?

  • 1 c
  • 1 c
    canola or vegetable oil
  • 3-4 c
  • 1 tsp
  • 1 tsp
    cinnamon (scant)
  • 3/4 c
    raisins or dates (soaked and chopped)
  • 1 c
    walnuts - finely crushed

How to Make Spice Biscotti


  1. Beat the eggs, sugar, and oil together well.
  2. Combine the flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon. Add the dry ingredients to the egg mixture, 1 cup at a time.
  3. Drain the raisins/dates and add them, along with the walnuts, to the dough. Mix thoroughly. The dough will be sticky. Oil your hands and make 2 or 3 loaves out of the dough.
  4. Bake them on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Slice the biscotti while they are warm. If you want them to be extra-crispy, place them on their sides and re-bake them for 5-10 minutes more.
