Pistachio and Anise Biscotti {Giveaway Closed}

pistachio-biscotti-1_97cd326c50336b98d1c5f1a10bd535c9

From all the Biscotti flavors I had, by far this is my favorite. I love pistachio, and anise gives a sweet aroma and adds an exotic taste.

Having my morning tea, followed by a bite from this delicate, crunchy, and delicious biscotti, brings a sense of calmness.

How do you like your biscotti?

Before sharing the recipe for the delightful biscotti, allow me to share my experience with my new friend from Takeya, The Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker.

I am busy most of the time and need a lot of energy, so to boost my metabolism and keep me going, I choose the green tea. It’s high quality and tasty tea, unlike the bitter green tea we usually find in the market.

I had fun with my tea, since I can add flavors to it. I added chopped fresh mint, slices of fresh orange, I had it with sage, but it was refreshing on its own too.

In the summer just add as much ice as you want and enjoy drinking your tea anywhere and at anytime. In winter skip the ice and enjoy a healthy and delicious drink that will keep you hydrated all the time.

If you’re not fond of drinking water, then this product is for you.

Takeya has variety of premium whole leaf teas, pick your favorite, and enjoy!

Pistachio and Anise Biscotti

Recipe Type: Breakfast
Serves: 6
Ingredients
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup pistachio whole
  • 1 tablespoon anise seeds
Instructions
  1. In a bowl, sift or whisk flour with baking powder and salt.
  2. In another bowl add the eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, and anise seeds, beat until fluffy.
  3. Add the flour and stir to combine. Do not over mix.
  4. Add the pistachio and mix well.
  5. Transfer the dough to greased baking pan, or just line a parchment paper.
  6. Wet your hands with cold water and press down the dough giving it a triangle shape which should be 1/2 high.
  7. Bake for 25 minutes. Take the biscotti out and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  8. Cut the biscotti into slices, the thickness really depends on how thick or thin you like your biscotti to be.
  9. Arrange the biscotti cut side down. Bake for 5-7 minutes, then turn the biscotti to the other side and bake for another 5-7 minutes.
  10. Transfer the biscotti to a rack and let it cool completely.

    I love green tea. And I have an iced tea recipe that would be perfect using that ice tea maker. :) What a lovely giveaway.

    I Liked Takeya on Facebook, following Takeya on Twitter, AND, I subscribed to my channel on Youtube!

    Your biscotti is lovely. I can’t wait to make them. Those would be perfect with some tea. And your videos are always so much fun to watch. I made a few videos in the pass and sometimes they are a bit time consuming to make. So I really appreciate the time and effort you spend on these lovely videos. :)

    Your biscotti looks so delicious! I have tried homemade (no, I didn’t bake, but my friend did it) and they are FAR better than store bought! I want to make these one day… WOW I’m surprised this company Takeya came to the US! It’s not a beverage company but they started new division I guess. The tea pot looks really cool!
