Corn kernels and cornmeal give these savory biscotti a pleasant crunch. Fresh or frozen corn kernels work equally well.

Double Corn-Parmesan Biscotti

Makes: About 4 dozen biscotti

Active Time:

Total Time:


  • 2 cups corn kernels
  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Coarsely chop corn in a food processor or blender. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour, cheese, cornmeal, sugar, baking powder, salt and baking soda in a large bowl. Whisk together eggs, egg whites and Tabasco in a medium bowl. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients; mix until almost smooth. Add the chopped corn and mix well.
  3. Working on a floured surface, shape the dough into 2 logs, each about 14 inches long and 1 1/2 inches thick. Place the logs on a prepared baking sheet and bake until firm to the touch, 22 to 27 minutes. Transfer the logs to a rack to cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 300°.
  4. Cut the logs diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Stand the slices upright on the baking sheet and bake for 60 minutes. Let cool.
