Biscotti is my favorite cookie. I love the crunch factor and the interesting flavor combinations that are typical in biscotti. Plus biscotti is definitely the easiest cookie to make – you bake all (or half) of the dough as one log and then slice shortly before they finish cooking.
This recipe is my current go-to. The weird texture of the figs really stands out and goes perfectly with the whole wheat flour and walnuts. Everything in these cookies just works.
My one complaint: it’s a very wet dough. I would adjust the recipe but I always halve it and you know, things get tricky when you’re using 1/2 an egg. It may work perfectly if you make the whole recipe but if you end up with a very wet dough, don’t stress about it. The biscotti log will spread more than usual but they will bake up in the end.
