My friend made these for a birthday party recently and I just had to have the recipe. This was another great Pinterest find… What did we ever do before Pinterest??! I’m kidding, of course, but you can’t deny there are some great recipes found.

I brought these to my aunt’s house in a recent trip. Whenever i visit family or friends I try not to go empty handed. I thought this would be a fun, different treat. They are so easy to make, not to mention, they’re great with a cup of coffee! The original recipe is from My Name is Yeh. The recipe bellow varies a bit from the link above. I didn’t have vegetable oil so I used coconut oil instead which I think makes bake goods a bit sweeter and I didn’t have pearl sugar so I exchanged it with demerara sugar instead.


  • 3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tbs clear imitation vanilla
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • a few pinches of demerara sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a larger bowl, whisk together oil and sugar. Once fully incorporated add the eggs, one at a time, and then the vanilla. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, (1/3 at a time) and then fold in the sprinkles.biscotti1

Line a baking sheet with parchment, divide dough into two equal parts, and then form long rectangles. Leave a few inches in between the rectangles because they will spread in the oven (or if you have tiny ovens like me, put the rectangles on separate baking sheets). Sprinkle the tops with a few pinches of demerara sugar and then bake for 25 minutes.

Remove from the oven and reduce heat to 250. Use a serrated knife to cut the rectangles into 1-inch pieces and place them on their sides. bake at 250 for 20 more minutes, or until desired crispiness.
