This month at Sourdough Surprises we did Sourdough Biscotti! If you aren’t familiar, biscotti is a twice baked crispy cookie – its great for dunking into coffee and tea. I’ve made sourdough biscotti before, so I knew it was good. However, the previous recipe required you to change a thinner 100% hydration starter into a thicker 50% hydration starter. This isn’t a hard thing to do, it just takes a few days, and is a good step to making biscotti. But, you know me, and I’m lazy, and I don’t like to follow directions. So I decided to create a recipe where I could utilize my 100% hydration starter!
I am actually really thrilled with how this biscotti turned out! It takes a little longer than a traditional biscotti to make, but its definitely shorter than taking several days to change hydration rate. And I still got a lovely crunchy biscotti. I decided to flavor it with the cinnamon roll spice mix I posted earlier, plus dotted the dough with cinnamon chips and drizzled some white chocolate on top. Its lovely, spicy, and perfect for a cup of coffee. I may or may not had some as a pre-breakfast snack this morning.
