Blueberry Almond Biscotti

Derrick and I have been on a biscotti kick lately.  We never buy it at the coffee shops but I do enjoy baking them.   We find the store bought ones to be too hard, while the ones I bake at home tend to be a little sweeter because I usually incorporate dried fruit which lends to a softer and slightly tender texture.   Biscotti is so easy to make and they require very few ingredients.  Many of the ingredients are regular things that you will find in your pantry, such as butter, flour, sugar, eggs, baking powder, extract and some sort of dried fruit or nuts.  It’s simple to make but it does requires time and patience since it is twice baked after all.  Derrick loves blueberries and almonds, so I thought I would incorporate those into the biscotti. It’s a great combination and it’s a fun treat anytime of the day.

The dried blueberries will plump up quite a bit during the baking process.

I love seeing the blueberries and almonds peeking through the biscotti!

    I’ve been meaning to make biscotti for months now but I’ve never gotten around to do that just yet. I’ll have to tackle them this weekend starting with this recipe since I absolutely love blueberries in my baked treats :)

    Biscotti is magical..crunchy, sweet and nutty and perfectly soggy when dipped in coffee. I (like many pour souls like me) am a coffee addict, and I can see your blueberry biscotti going great with my morning cup o joe. I still have never made biscotti and your version looks awesome!

    I love biscotti and these look and sound divine. I’m going to try these next time I’m making biscotti. :) They always fill my cookie jar.

    When I made your cranberry one I ran out of cranberries so substituted with dried blueberries but made the mistake of using the one from Kirkland/Costco, which are waaay too sweet. Tip check your package to see sugar content.

    Chung-Ah: Oh – once you start making biscotti you’ll be hooked!!

    Julia {The Roasted Root}: :) Funny thing is that I’m not a big coffee person — I have no excuse for loving biscotti…. I guess I just like to eat!

    Valentina: Thank you!!

    Amy Tong: I can’t risk leaving in my cookie jar at home otherwise I will eat them all! I pawn them off to my co-workers!

    Jen Kuo: Thanks for the tip Jen!!

    Stephie @ Eat Your Heart Out: Thank you!!
