One dough, countless variations of biscuits!

In my family there are those who love chocolate chip biscuits, those who prefer coffee flavored biscuits, and those who love feeling apple chunks in the dough … This recipe not only makes everyone agree, but it triggers the imagination of the little chefs and adolescents cooks who will conjure up  and test endless new combinations!

Make the dough and divide it into as many parts as the falvors of biscuits. You can also brush the biscuits with beaten egg and coat with granulated sugar BEFORE baking, or cover with icing sugar AFTER baking, or fill with jam or chocolate cream.

Ingredients for about fifty biscuits:

  • 500 g flour,
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder,
  • 225 g sugar,
  • 250 g butter,
  • 2 eggs,
  • a pinch of salt.

Ideas for the variations:

  1. Lemon peel, coconut flakes and white chocolate chips,
  2. vanilla and apple chips
  3. Grated orange peel and dark chocolate chips
  4. A teaspoon of instant decaf coffee and chopped walnuts
  5. Chopped  mint leaves and chocolate chips
  6. chocolate chips and vanilla …. and …. so on and so forth …..

 

biscotti

In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, a pinch of salt and sugar. Add the cold butter cut into small pieces and mix quickly with your fingertips until the butter is blended into the flour.  Add the eggs and stir; knead quickly.

Divide into several parts and add the ingredients of your choice to create different tastes. Wrap in cling film and refrigerate for at least half an hour.

 

Preheat the oven to 180 °. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin (not too thin) and cut with cutters of your choice. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned.
