"Smoked paprika may not be Italian, but it’s one of my favorite savory spices. I love it sprinkled on roast potatoes, in egg salad, in soups and stews, and in these fragrant biscotti. I wanted to underline that smoky flavor, so I added a generous quantity of smoked Gouda cheese to the mix." - Domenica Marchetti, author of Ciao BiscottiView Recipe

Oh, the biscotti! However you pronounce it, this iconic Italian treat is traditionally served alongside coffee, so it’s no surprise that it’s on Starbucks’ secret menu. Unlike many of the other secret Frappuccino recipes (have a look at our “Starbucks’ Secret Menu: The Ultimate Guide”), the biscotti Frappuccino does not rely on syrups for its flavor, but the actual biscotti itself!
"Every once in a while, my mom would make a trip to the Italian bakery in Trenton, New Jersey, where she would pick up (among many things) a delicious ring loaf of bread studded with crispy bits of pancetta and savory with tangy cheese. That’s what I had in mind when I created this recipe." - Domenica Marchetti, author of Ciao BiscottiClick here for more of our best biscotti recipesView Recipe

Crispy, buttery, and rich with tangy blue cheese flavor, these biscotti are perfect for a holiday gathering." - Domenica Marchetti, author of Ciao BiscottiView Recipe

SESAME ALMOND BISCOTTI THINS
3/4 C. whole wheat flour
1/2 C. barley flour
1/4 t. salt
1 C. whole almonds
1/2 C. sesame seeds
1/2 C. golden raisins
4 egg whites, room temperature
1/2 C. sugar
2 t. pure vanilla extract
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees. Line a 8 1/2 x 4 1/2 loaf pan with parchment paper and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk the whole wheat flour, barley flour and salt together. Stir in the almonds, sesame seeds and raisins.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites to soft peaks. I like to do it by hand, but you can use a mixer if you'd like. Once you've reach soft peaks, add the sugar in small amounts whisking in between until all of the sugar is incorporated. Whisk in the vanilla.
Add the flour mixture slowly and with a large spoon or rubber spatula, fold the egg white mixture into the flour mixture. Do not over-mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and bake in the oven for 45 to 50 minutes.
Remove from oven. Raise oven heat to 425 degrees. Place pan on a rack to cool slightly for about 10 minutes.
Lift the loaf out of the pan with the parchment. It should still be warm, but cool enough to handle, if not, wait about five more minutes. On a cutting board, using your sharpest serrated knife, begin to cut the loaf into 1/8" slices. Arrange slices on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
Bake the thins for 4 minutes. Remove them from the oven and flip each one over. Return them to the oven and bake for an additional 3 minutes.
Cool the thins completely on a cooling rack.
Meanwhile, prepare a pot of coffee. Find your favorite mug. Grab a good book, a handful of biscotti thins, relax and enjoy!
"I think of these as the rock stars of the cookie world," says Goldsmith. "Simple to make and loaded with lots of big flavors, these biscotti taste even better the longer they sit… but they are so fantastic, they probably won’t last very long."
Biscotti means "twice baked" in Italian. First you form the crumbly dough into one stiff mass and bake it whole. Then you let it cool, slice it, and bake it again at a lower temperature. That’s what gives biscotti an almost crackerlike quality, which goes especially well with coffee. This triple-chocolate double-baked treat is dipped in a dark chocolate coating with sprinkles on top. Dip it in your coffee and then pop it in your mouth.

Chocolate lovers will swoon over these crunchy biscotti. Freshly brewed espresso is the secret ingredient enhancing the rich chocolate flavor. Serve these with a little gelato, coffee, or tea for a lovely mid-afternoon treat. The chocolate drizzle is optional but adds a nice touch.
