This tiny affogato and biscotti will perk you up any morning.

Biscotti and Affogato


  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting

  • 1/8 teaspoon baking powder

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon butter, softened

  • 2 teaspoons sugar

  • 1/2 teaspoon quail egg, beaten

  • 1/8 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon pistachios, coarsely chopped

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried cranberries

  • Affogato:

  • 1 tiny cup coffee

  • 1 tiny scoop vanilla ice cream


  1. In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In a separate bowl, mix butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Combine wet and fry ingredients and fold in cranberries and pistachios.

  2. Form dough into a log and place on a baking sheet. Press down slightly. Bake until logs are slightly firm to touch, 5 minutes. Place logs on a cutting board. Using a knife, cut logs crosswise on the diagonal into 1/8-inch-thick slices. Bake until firm to the touch, about 2 more minutes. Remove pan from oven.

  3. To make affogato: add ice cream to cup of coffee.
