How to Freeze Biscotti

By Elizabeth Arnold

Biscotti, which means "twice-baked," is an Italian cookie that is baked in a loaf, sliced and then toasted to a crisp texture. While some biscotti varieties have a cake- or cookie-like texture, most are dry and crunchy. Biscotti are available in a wide range of flavors, such as chocolate, almond, vanilla, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, lemon and anise. Some types of biscotti feature dried fruit or are glazed with chocolate as a decadent touch. Biscotti are typically served as breakfast or dessert along with tea, coffee or wine. If you made a large batch of biscotti or received several pieces as a gift, you can freeze the excess to keep them fresh.

Freeze unused biscotti so it maintains its crunchy texture.

Step 1

Tear off a piece of plastic wrap and place it on a flat surface, such as a kitchen counter. Lay the biscotti to be stored side-by-side in the center of the plastic sheet.

Step 2

Gather the ends of the plastic wrap together tightly to create a snug fit around the biscotti.

Step 3

Place the wrapped biscotti into a plastic or glass container featuring an airtight lid. Set the lid on top of the container and press down firmly to create a secure seal.

Step 4

Cut a piece of freezer tape using scissors and wrap it around the container's lid to further protect the biscotti from food odors and freezer burn.

Step 5

Use a marker to label the freezer tape with the word "biscotti" followed by the date. Place the biscotti-filled container into a freezer and store it for up to three months.
