Recipe for Paximadia – Traditional Greek Biscotti
Paximadia Recipe Ingredients:
- 2 cups vegetable oil, such as canola oil
- 2 cups orange juice
- 2 cups sugar
- 5 tsp baking powder
- 3 tsp cinnamon
- 7 cups flour (use gluten-free if following a gluten-free diet)
How to Bake Greek Biscotti:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Add everything but the flour to the bowl and mix. Slowly add the flour to the mixture until the dough has a soft, but not sticky, consistency. You may not use all the flour.
Make long rounded strips of dough and press them on to a pan to flatten the top and sides. Score them every few inches (depending on how big you want the biscotti to come out.)
Bake at 350 degrees until they are slightly browned, approximately 20 minutes. Take the pan out of the oven and lower the oven to 250 degrees.
Remove the biscotti strips from the pan and cut them where they were scored. Place the cookies back on the baking sheet on their sides (so all sides of the biscotti can properly dry) and continue to bake at 250 for 2 hours until they are nice and dry.
