These cookie butter biscotti cookies are so incredibly irresistible and are made to easily dunk in your morning coffee over and over!
These cookie butter biscotti are packed with cookie butter flavor, in the dough and the glaze!
Cookie Butter Biscotti Cookies
Crispy, crunchy, and full of deliciously irresistible cookie butter flavor.
I came up with this easy biscotti recipe just about a year ago but didn’t put them on the blog, and instead sent the recipe into a magazine hoping they would be featured. Spoiler alert: they weren’t.
So now as we head into fall, and me not being quite ready to dive into the heart of all things warm and cozy — it’s still 90 degrees outside! — I thought I could ease myself into fall baking with a nice dozen or two of cookie butter biscotti cookies.
What Are Biscotti Cookies?
Biscotti are Italian cookies that are baked twice, but don’t let that intimidate you, they are so easy to put together. After combining the ingredients, you bake the biscotti log, then cut it on a diagonal into individual cookies, then lay them flat and bake again to get them nice, crisp, and toasty.
After they cool off, drizzle them with — yep, you guessed it — more cookie butter flavor, in the form of a glaze.
Cookie butter on cookie butter, can’t get much better than that.
Where to buy cookie butter
Let’s talk about the cookie butter.
If you go through my site you’ll see this is not the first time we’re highlighting cookie butter. We have Cookie Butter Fudge, Cookie Butter Bark, and my ultimate favorite, Cookie Butter Babka.
Basically, it’s because cookie butter is INSANELY AND IRRESISTIBLY addictive. I mean it’s cookies and butter, not sure how it could be any other way. Last year during Hurricane Irma, I was so nervous I just started eating it out of the jar with a spoon. Instant comfort. For like three seconds, but whatever that’s a story for another day.
I buy the Walmart brand Speculoos cookie butter — don’t judge. I would love to buy the Lotus Bischoff spread on the regular but the Kosher one is majorly expensive because they have to import it.
So I buy the Walmart cookie butter for less than $3 and lose the shame because now I can buy 4 jars of cookie butter for the price of one. WIN.
What else is a win? These cookie butter biscotti!!
What’s in these biscotti cookies?
Besides cookie butter (yum), the biscotti ingredients you’ll need to make these twice-baked cookies include eggs, granulated sugar, all-purpose flour, vanilla extract, baking powder, and salt.
I know bloggers say this all the time, but I bet you really do have all the ingredients you need to make these homemade biscotti cookies right now. (No seriously, you should be starting a batch of these RIGHT NOW).
How to Make Biscotti Cookies
These are so easy to make from scratch! Simply combine the wet and dry ingredients in two separate bowls, then combine the two to form an epic cookie butter biscotti dough. Divide the massive dough ball in two, and shape each half into a log.
Bake the logs for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven and cut into inch-thick slices. Bake the biscotti cookies for another 20 minutes total, flipping them halfway through.
Once the cookie butter biscotti are out of the oven, drizzle on that glaze and dive in.
Tips for the best biscotti cookies
To make things easier, use a serrated knife to cut the biscotti cookies when you first take them out of the oven. If you try to cut these with a dull blade, you’ll wind up smashing the biscotti rather than slicing them.
Note that the cookie butter biscotti will crisp up as they cool. These babies taste even more incredible once they’ve cooled and have had time to become crispy crunchy. Dip one (or five) into your morning cup of coffee for a real treat.
You’ll also want to store these homemade biscotti in an airtight container at room temperature. These will last for quite a while! If you have more willpower than I do, that is.
How to Store Biscotti:
I store these cookies in a ziplock bag or airtight container on my counter top for 3-4 days. You can also freeze them in a freezer safe bag or double wrap them with tin foil in a tin.

Looking forward to making these this year, they sound great! I am going to add in toffee bits and hope it works as well as I think it will. Question…does the glaze set and harden pretty well? I will be packaging some of these up and I am hoping that they wont be messy in the little bags. Thanks for this (what I am sure will be) wonderful recipe!
Sam Adler says
Hi Jennifer! Ive packaged them up to before too! It makes such a great treat! Just make sure to leave them out to harden for at least 2 hours. They harden up pretty well but if you push down on it hard they can smush a little. Hope you love them! Thank you so much for your 5 star review!
