Description

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 bread crumbs
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

1Preheat oven to 180 Celsius.
2Sift 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.
3Mix 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.
4Remove 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.
5Whisk the remaining egg yolk together with a pinch of salt and brush the logs with the mixture. Sprinkle with sugar.
6Bake for approximately 25 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool for at least 1 hour.
7Cut 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.
8Let cool completely and drizzle with melted chocolate, if desired.
9Keep in a sealed container up to 3 months.
