Toasted Sesame and Fig Biscotti

I find this delightful addition to any coffee or tea break. These are very good with Darjeeling. You may even dip in a Honey Vanilla Glaze. Extraordinary!

How to Make Toasted Sesame and Fig Biscotti


  • 1Preheat oven to 325.
  • 2In a small pot, I prefer Corningware, place water, butter, and 3/4 cup of figs. Heat on medium with a lid until figs plump, but there is still liquid.
  • 3Place pot contents in blender, liquefy.
  • 4Place all ingredients, but sesame, coarse sugar, and red or purple sugar in a mixing bowl and pour in liquefied figs. Beat for 3 minutes.
  • 5Add dried figs and blend for an additional minute.
  • 6Take two cookie sheets, line with wax paper, and spray with non-stick spray.
  • 7Take half the batter and spoon onto cookie sheet into a 3in x 8in rectangle. Smooth to desired shape with spoon. Repeat on second cookie sheet with other half of batter.
  • 8Place in oven for 12 minutes.
  • 9Remove and allow to cool for 5.
  • 10Then cut into 1in strips or your desired size biscotti.
  • 11Change wax paper and respray.
  • 12Place on side and bake for 5 minutes. Flip biscotti and repeat.
  • 13It you prefer crunchier, leave in for 7 minutes.
  • 14Allow to cool and enjoy.
