  • Stella Doro Biscotti

    I've searched a gazillion recipes and cannot find one that is as airy & light as Stella Doro's anise-flavored biscotti.

    If anybody has that recipe PLEASE let me know. Perhaps they use egg whites, not sure but I do know I make pretty good biscotti but do not come close to the manufactured product BUT I won't buy 'em cuz I'm determined to find the recipe. Tee hee.

    Re: Stella Doro Biscotti

    The only Stella D'oro recipe on the Internet, that I could find, is for something called Stella D'oro Toast in almond (whch could be flavored in anisette).

    Source: Uncle Phaedrus website

    Stella D'Oro is a cookie and biscotti company. They are owned by Kraft. They make something called "Stella D'Oro Toast", which comes in Almond and Anisette flavors. Below is a recipe that claims to be close to the almond flavor. I could not locate a recipe for anything similar to the anisette flavor. However, if you replace the almond essence in the recipe below with ouzo or anisette, that might make it.

    Breakfast Toast (Paximathia)
    (this makes a lot)

    This is like the Stella D'Oro Almond Toast

    1 lb butter
    2 cups sugar
    6 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1 teaspoon almond essence
    2 cups almonds
    7 cups flour
    4 teaspoons baking powder

    Toast nuts at 300 deg F. Cream sugar and butter together. Add eggs one
    at a time. Add other ingredients. Knead well and divide into 6 parts.
    Divide into 6 parts and shape into 2" wide rolls. Beat one egg well
    and brush tops and sides. Crush nuts and top rolls. Bake in moderate
    oven - 350 deg - 15 minutes. When done, slice while warm and toast
    at 325 degrees (in the oven) till crisp. Store in refrigerator as you would
    bread.These keep well until needed.
