How to make boiled apple cider

Place 2 cups of fresh apple cider in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and boil until it’s reduced to 1/2 cup, about 25 minutes.

Now be sure to watch it carefully, it will burn quickly towards the end. Trust me on this one. Remove from the heat and let cool.

How to make Spiced Apple Cider Biscotti

In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3-4 minutes.

Add the eggs one at a time until incorporated.

Add 1/4 cup + 1 tablespoon of the boiled apple cider and mix just until incorporated.

Add the flour a little at a time until blended. Divide the dough in half.

Place each piece on a parchment lined baking sheet and shape each into a log about 10″-12″ long and 4″ wide. Damp fingertips will help with this process.

Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the pan and let cool until it’s not too hot to handle about 10 minutes.

Carefully move the logs to a cutting board, using a serrated knife, cut into 1-inch slices. Return slices to baking sheet, with cut side down, and bake 10-15 minutes.

Remove from the oven, turn the slices over and bake for another 10 minutes or until mostly firm. They will continue to harden while cooling.

Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons of boiled cider and whisk until smooth. Drizzle over the biscotti.
