Add more milk if the dough is too crumbly

Divide the dough by taking a piece about double the size of the length of your hand. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and shape into a loaf. Flatten the top of this loaf and brush with milk. Repeat. You can bake 2 of these on 1 cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 until lightly browned. Insert tooth pick in center to test for doneness. When toothpick is clean, cookies are done. Do not make these loaves too thick, they take longer to bake through the center.

When cool. Ice the loaves. Slice each loaf the width of your finger.


For the icing:
Mix it all together- add food coloring if you'd like

Drizzle the icing on the cooled cookies

This was given to me from Pap's sister over the phone and she was getting frustrated when I was asking her for the exact measurements so I didn't press her too much. They are a softer biscotti unlike the ones your mom makes in which Auntie Flo gave us that recipe.

I don't have measurements for the icing. Aunt Jennie just told me I would know when I reached the right consistency. Sometimes I did , sometimes I didn't.

Good luck. I love these cookies they are so much softer.

Love Squig
