Biscotti di Nozze & Cookie Exchange Blog Hop

It's the season of traditions. Little things that warm the heart and create a family bond.

One newer family tradition for us is the cookie table and coffee service after dinner at weddings. My sisters baked almost all of the biscotti for my wedding, we're talking hundreds, an act of love I'll never forget. The Biscotti di Nozze, Italian for Wedding Cookie, is always a favorite that only comes out at special occasions. It's one that I'm adding to my Christmas cookie list. 

2 sticks salted butter,  softened to room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 cup coarsely ground, toasted pecans (I toasted at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then pulsed in a nut chopper until coarsely ground)
2 cups flour, sifted
Extra powdered sugar for coating

Cream butter and sugar.  
Mix in vanilla and nuts.  Then mix in flour.  
Roll into 1" balls.  
Bake on Silpat or parchment paper on cookie sheets at 325 degrees for approximately 17 minutes (cookies should not brown).  
Toss cookies in powdered sugar 2-5 minutes after coming out of oven and again when cooled.

Super easy and the end result is amazing! 

What's becoming a tradition for this blog is an annual Cookie Exchange Blog Hop! Check out these goodies!
