Sharing is caring!

This is Italian Biscotti Cookie recipe has been in our family for years! Now that we have been stuck at home for a few weeks, I decided to try baking my Mimi’s Italian biscotti cookies. When I was a little girl, I would bake these cookies with my mimi for each holiday. It was such a fond memory growing up and want to carry on the tradition with my own children. This Italian biscotti cookie recipe is a family favorite and I know you will love them to!

Bake 17 minutes

Cool for a couple of minutes on the cookie sheet, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Make your icing. Mix confectioner’s sugar, and milk to get a good drizzling consistency.

Line a cookie sheet with waxed paper (for easier clean up later.)

Dip the top of each cooled cookie into the icing, scraping the excess off on the side of the bowl before placing onto the prepared cookie sheet.

After you’ve dipped a few cookies, stop to add your sprinkles before the icing hardens, then continue dipping and sprinkling until all cookies are decorated.

Allow icing to set and Enjoy!
