Great for when you want something crunchy, like at a party. Serve with coffee, or buried under scrambled eggs. Use them in place of bread sticks at your next Italian meal. They are loaded with almonds and figs to give them a hint of the Middle East.

Ingredients

  • 130 grams wheat flour
  • 80 grams corn flour
  • baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 120 milliliters olive oil
  • 120 grams sugar
  • salt
  • 1 lemon zest
  • 75 grams dried figs (cut into small pieces)
  • 75 grams slivered almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 175 °C.
  2. Mix the flours and the baking powder in a bowl.
  3. In another bowl, with an electric mixer beat eggs, olive oil, sugar, lemon zest, and a pinch of salt for 3 to 4 minutes at high speed until the mixture is pale.
  4. Add flour mixture. The dough should get sticky.
  5. Add almonds and figs, mix.
  6. On a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spread the dough to 30-35 centimeters long by 10-12 centimeters wide.
  7. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until golden brown on top, and a little more cooked at the corners.
  8. Remove from oven; let cool for 15 minutes.
  9. Gently move dough to a cutting board.
  10. Lower the oven temperature to 150 C.
  11. Cut into 2 centimeter thick slices.
  12. Arrange cakes on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper, and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until dough gets harder and a little more crispy.
  13. Let cool on a rack.
  14. Store for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
  15. Serve with chocolate mousse, a fruit salad, or a scoop of ice cream.

I love biscotti – especially with coffee or tea in the morning. If you dip yours in chocolate, make sure you refrigerate your container you keep them in for freshness.
