Cookie Day

YAY! Today is Cookie Day! Who doesn’t like cookies? I should eat cookies all day to celebrate this day! I could have started the day with some healthy Pumpkin breakfast cookies, than have a chocolate cookie as a snack, eat a granola bar or something for lunch, have another yummy cookie as a snack again and then have … Ok, bad idea. I did decide to make one of my favourite cookies of all times: Biscotti! I looooove these cookies! I had so much fun making these. They are really easy! There was just one teeny, tiny mistake I made and that was the size. I should have cut the log I made lengthwise into two equal pieces. I now have ginormous cookies. Ok, for cookies they are not that big but for biscotti, they are very big. Luckily, they do taste good. I have to be honest, I should have left them in the oven a wee bit longer to make them more crispy but they still taste fabulous. Especially fresh out of the oven!

Homemade Biscotti cookies. Super simple to make. Check my website to see how!

These cookies are really simple to make:

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Next, combine the following ingredients to get kind of a loose dough:

315 gr spelt flour
1 tsp baking powder
100 gr raw cane sugar
2 eggs and 1 yolk
1/2 tsp himalayan salt

Once you have your dough, mix in 100 gr of coursely chopped almonds and shape it into a log of about 30 cm. Cut it lenghtwise in two equal parts (I skipped this step but shouldn’t have because your cookies will be a bit to big) and reshape them into nice logs again. Your logs should be about 2,5 cm (1 inch) thick. Place the logs on a baking sheet, brush them with a bit of milk or egg yolk and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until nice and brown. Take them out of the oven, let them cool a bit and cut them into equal slices. Arrange them on the baking sheet and bake them for another 5 minutes to dry out the cut-sides a bit.

The last step is the most important. Do NOT forget this last step: enjoy your cookies!

That’s it! Try them and let me know what you think in a comment below!
