Biscotti is a basic cookie that makes a great accompaniment to your afternoon cup of coffee or tea. In this recipe the dough is studded with walnuts and almonds and accented with orange extract for a bold and delicious flavor. The process of baking the biscotti is what give these cookies their distinctive crunch and ensures they will last for a long time when stored properly, though with the bold flavor in this version it's no guarentee they will make it past the first few days.

Ingredients

  • 285 grams flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 170 grams sugar
  • 85 grams breadcrumbs
  • 110 grams almonds (whole)
  • 110 grams walnuts (whole)
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon orange extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • chocolate (melted, optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180 Celsius.
  2. Sift the flour and baking powder together. Place into a mixer and add the sugar and bread crumbs. Mix together at low speed. Add the almonds and walnuts.
  3. Mix together the orange juice, orange extract, vanilla, 2 eggs and 1 egg yolk (set aside the leftover egg white) in a separate bowl. Add to the dry ingredients gradually. Mix together until a firm dough is formed.
  4. Remove the dough from the mixture and divide into two parts. Form each into log 40 centimeters in length. Place onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  5. Whisk the remaining egg yolk together with a pinch of salt and brush the logs with the mixture. Sprinkle with sugar.
  6. Bake for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 1 hour.
  7. Cut the logs diagonally to slice into biscotti, each should be no thicker than 1 centimeter. Place onto baking sheets and bake at 190 C until lightly golden, approximately 15-20 minutes.
  8. Let cool completely and drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
  9. Keep in a sealed container up to 3 months.

I love biscotti and this recipe is great. I didn’t have to make any alterations. I did find it hard knowing when they were done. Cookies you should pull out of the oven a bit before they are done to keep them moist and gooey. With biscotti you want it to be hard. I had to play around with a couple batches to get the temperature and cook time just right.
