Biscotti



Biscotti is a traditional Italian cookie where the dough is formed into logs, baked, cooled slightly, and baked again in slices. I’ve learned that Italians use the word “biscotti” to refer to various types of cookies and Americans use the term to describe this particular long, crisp, twice-baked, sophisticated looking cookie. Biscotti’s crunchy texture and its flavor possibilities make it a coffee-pairing favorite.
The mixture is composed exclusively of flour, sugar, eggs, pine nuts, and almonds that are not roasted or skinned. The traditional recipe uses no form of yeast or fat (butter, oil, milk). The barely wet dough is then cooked twice: once in slab form, and again after cutting in sliced form, with the second baking defining how hard the biscotti are.
Traditionally in Italy, biscotti di Prato are sold together with another sweet speciality of Prato, the bruttiboni. Served after dessert, they are usually combined with orange juice.

Cookie



Cookie is a baked or cooked snack or dessert that is typically small, flat and sweet. It usually contains flour, sugar, egg, and some type of oil, fat, or butter. It may include other ingredients such as raisins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, etc.
Cookie is an American English name, which was derived from the Dutch word ‘koekje’ which means ’little cake’. Cookies are loaded with flavours and take more time to bake, because of the thick batter and dense ingredients that range between nuts, oats, chocolate chips and resins. They are generally moist and chewy in texture.
Cookies require soft dough, while biscuits require hard dough.
Cookies are little heavier than biscuits, whereas, biscuits are fluffier than cookies.
Cookies contain more sugar than biscuits.
