Cheese Biscotti

Cheese Biscotti

I only used grated cheese to make it simple.
You can already smell the nice fragrance from the baking cheese when they are in the oven.

Ingredients: about 25 thin slices

Cake flour
90 g
Almond flour
30 g
Grated cheese
30 g
Baking powder
2.5 g
Butter
15 g
Granulated sugar
90 g
Egg
1
Milk
2 teaspoons

Steps

1. Sift the cake flour, almond flour, and baking powder together. Preheat the oven to 170℃ / 340℉.
2. Add butter brought to room temperature, granulated sugar, egg, and milk in that order to a bowl. Mix after each addition.
3. Add the sifted dry mixture and grated cheese, then fold in. The dough is very soft.
4. Dust parchment paper with bread flour (not listed) and place the dough on top. I prefer thin biscotti, so I divide the dough into 2 portions.
5. Dust the top of the dough and your hands with bread flour. Form 7 ~ 8 mm thick rectangles (They will rise a little bit after baking).
6. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes at 170℃ / 340℉. Take them out from the oven, and slice into strips. Lay on the baking sheet with the cut ends facing up.
7. Pop them back in the oven and bake for another 6 - 7 minutes at 150℃ / 300℉ to make them crispier and crunchier.
8. When they cool down, you can enjoy the crispy and crunchy texture. Wrap them nicely as presents.

Story Behind this Recipe

I tried increasing and decreasing the amount of grated cheese, and I arrived to the perfect amount.
