If you really like cookies why not making your own at home, here is an easy and quick recipe for you to try.

We love cookies, or ‘biscotti’ in Italian, because they are yummy and it only takes a few minutes to prepare them (10 min preparation and 15 min baking time) plus they fill the room with a delicious smell!

Here is our simple recipe with raisins but you can make your own version with other ingredients like hazelnuts, almonds, or dark chocolate chips.

1.     Put the flour, vanilla baking powder, sugar, eggs and butter in a bowl and mix it all up

2.     Add the raisins and continue to mix until all the ingredients are blended together

3.     Shape the dough into a ball with your hands and place it on a board

4.     Roll out the dough with a rolling pin until it’s about 1 cm thick
