Grana Padano or Parmesan Cheese Snacks / Biscotti con Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano

Here is a nice biscotti to go with wine as a nibble before dinner; easy to make and freezes well.

Makes about 2 dozen


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into bits
  • 1 cup plus 1 tablespoon grated Grana Padano or Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups King Arthur unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 large eggs, slightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Ingredients


  1. Directions 
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  3. Pulse the butter, cheese, flour, paprika and salt in a food processor.  Add the eggs through the feed tube until a dough forms; add a bit of water if necessary.
  4. Form dough into a 12-inch long log about 2 inches thick.  Wrap and refrigerate overnight.  Cut into 1/4-inch thick round slices and place on parchment lined baking sheets.
  5. Bake about 12 minutes or until nicely browned.
  6. Variation:  Add 1/4 cup chopped pistachio nuts.

Ciao a tutti !!!
I would like to know how long should I bake these biscotti because the recipe says 12 minutes, but the video says 20 to 25 minutes.
Waiting to hear from you soon…
