Banana Biscotti Bones


Although these are treats for your favorite four-legged friend, humans like them too!



  1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees F and set a rack on the middle level. Have ready one or two ungreased nonstick baking sheets.
  2. Mix the flour, peanuts and baking soda together in a large bowl. Gradually stir in the remaining ingredients, except the water, until lumpy but blended.
  3. Add enough water, a teaspoon at a time, to make a stiff dough. Knead by hand until thoroughly mixed. Or blend everything in a food processor.
  4. For very large biscotti, form the dough into 2 logs, each about 2 1/2 inches high, placing one on each baking sheet. Flatten each log so that it is 6 inches wide and 1 inch high. For medium-size biscotti, form 4 logs, 2 on each sheet, and flatten each into loaves that are 3 inches wide and 1 inch high. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove to wire racks and let rest for 10 minutes.
  5. Leave the oven on. Transfer the logs to a cutting board and slice into 1/2- to 3/4-inch pieces. (It's easiest to slice them on the diagonal, using a serrated bread knife.) Return the slices to the baking sheets and bake for about 20 minutes longer, turning once, until they are golden brown. Cool on racks. Store in a tightly closed tin at room temperature.

Makes 30 to 60 dog (or people) biscuits.
