Black Peppercorn & Romano Cheese Biscotti
These are a slightly spicy savory biscotti. Made into full length biscotti, these are attractive and delicious when served with a clear broth or an Italian wedding soup.
1 ¼ cups of all purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of salt
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.
¼ cup butter (softened)
½ Tablespoon sugar
2 large eggs
¼ cup of fresh grated romano cheese
(cheeses like Asiago or Parmesan are a good substitute)
2 Tablespoons Milk
Cream butter, sugar, and cheese till well combined. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Add half the dry ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon. Add milk. Stir well. Add the rest of dry ingredients and mix till well combined. Add freshly cracked pepper and stir in. If you do not have a pepper mill, place whole peppercorns into a plastic bag and crush with a mallet or hammer. The trouble will be well worth it.
