Grandma Lucchese’s Biscotti Christmas Cookies

by Maryann Pisano on December 2, 2012

My grandma Catherine Lucchese loved Christmas.  It was just another excuse for her to bake, bake, bake!  Here is her biscotti recipe that she would bake at Christmastime.  I hope it warms your heart the way it did mine!

  • 5 cups flour (sifted)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder (sifted)
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon oil of anise
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 6 eggs

Cream butter and sugar well.

Add 6 eggs, 1 at a time.  Add 1/4 teaspoon of oil of anise and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.  Sift flour and baking powder together.   Add sifted flour mixture gradually.  When dough becomes thick,  fold in remaining flour by hand.  Make loafs- smooth out dough with milk.  Bake 20 minutes then check.
