Oreo Biscotti



What's a cup of hot chocolate without a biscotti? Undrinkable! In our house. Alexander loves, hot chocolate and he loves cookies and biscotti. I make different kinds of biscotti, but the oreo one is his favorite, that's because he loves oreo cookies, but he prefers biscotti for "dipping" in his hot chocolate.


 In the last week we have been watching Toy Story 1 and 2 ( more times that I wanna remember), he is very excited abut the third one coming out in the summer of next year, that's all he talks about. I have to admit that I'm pretty excited as well. I watched the first one with my son Brandon when it first came out, then with Cass when the second one was released, and I'm so happy that Alex is going to go to the theater to experience the third one ( in 3D). Until then we  are watching the 1 and 2, and I have bookmarked the theatrical trailer on you tube for the third one ( otherwise I have to search for it 10 times a day). He loves  when Buz  is speaking spanish.... His grandmother ( my mom) already bought for him the new Buzz and Woody toys. He can't wait until Christmas when she's coming over.
 The cup of hot chocolate in the above picture, I got it ready for him, so he can enjoy it while watching the "Trailer" again.

Actually, here is the famous trailer. Enjoy!



Now back to the biscotti. This recipe I found on Kraft foods website. Very easy to make, and delicious.

Ingredients:

1 cup of sugar
3 eggs
1/3 cup unsalted butter melted
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
3 cups flour
1 1/2 baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
16 Oreo cookies, coarsely chopped ( about 2 cups)

Preheat oven to 350˚F. In a large bowl mix sugar, butter ( melted), eggs and vanilla, until well blended.



Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well.



Add the chopped Oreo cookies.




Mix well. Divide the dough in 2 equal portions. With floured hands shape into logs. Place the logs on greased baking sheet.




Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until golden brown, or the toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. Cut each log into 16 slices 1/2 inch thick. You can cut it diagonally or straight. I cut them straight.




 Place the biscotti cut side up on the same baking sheet, return to the oven for another 10 to 12 minutes, on each side or until lightly toasted on both sides. Cool on a wire rack. If you like the biscotti can be drizzled with melted chocolate.



Enjoy with a cup of hot chocolate or coffee, while watching Buz and Woody ( again).

The little chef has gorgeous eyes. I do love Oreo as a kid and if they're available on the table, I would actually eat it. An oreo biscotti sounds fantastic with hot chocolate. I am looking forward to the movie too.

Jeannie said...

Wow those biscotti sure looks delicious. The Little Chef is so cute.

TheChocolatePriestess said...

Yeah, I like to dip my biscotti, too, I find it makes eating them a lot easier because, to be completely blunt: I find them hard as rocks most often even ones I buy from decent bakeries in town. I don't, maybe they are supposed to be hard so you have to dip them. These are not a treat I grew up with at all.

Laura said...

Thank you Penny!

Laura said...

Thanks Drick, and no, it's not just for kids, It works well for the kid at heart too(LOL).

Laura said...

Thank you Jeannie:)

Laura said...

Yes, they are supposed to be hard. You eat them dipped in coffee or hot chocolate.

Sage said...

OMG! This is my childhood Oreo fantasy all grown up! Seriously when I was a kid, I would eat Oreo frosting straight from the can. These are spectacular!!!!

Laura said...

Thanks Rachel,
My boys could LIVE on oreo cookies....:)

Patty said...

Oreos in your biscotti?! What a brilliant idea! I am definitely going to try these for the holiday season. Thanks very much for sharing!

Laura said...

My pleasure Patty:)

Susan said...

Those look delicious! I have some mini oreos at home, maybe I'll add it to my list of things to bake..

Alanna Tang. :) said...

Hi , it's me again. :) May I know how much flour do I need to add into the mixture ?

Laura said...

Hi Alanna,
Yes, of course you may, actually the flour amount is listed in the recipe.
It's 3 cups.☺

Haley McAdams said...

Hey Laura! This is awesome! I never thought Oreo can be this flexible in baking. Seriously a lot of oreo recipes I saw in other blogs are more in cookies and other stuff. This one is different because you included it in the cake itself. I want to make one after I pass my Food Safety Course. My very own congratulatory gift for myself. :)
