Almond And Orange Biscotti


Home | Recipes | A

Ingredients:

  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Egg yolks
  • 2 1/2 c Plain flour
  • 1 c Caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 ts Baking powder
  • 125 g Blanched almonds; roughly chopped
  • 1 tb Grated orange zest
  • 1 tb Milk

Directions:

1. Pre-heat oven to 180deg.C. Line two baking trays with Glad Bake.
 
2. Lightly beat 2 whole eggs and 1 egg yolk together. Add flour, sugar and baking powder and mix to a soft dough. Add almonds and orange zest and knead until combined.
 
3. Divide dough into equal portions and roll each piece into a cylinder. Using a fork, place remaining egg yolk and milk in a small bowl and stir to combine. Place cylinders of dough onto baking trays and brush with the egg mixture.
 
4. Bake for about 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cut while hot. The dough will be very fragile at this stage. Reduce oven temperature to 150deg.C. Place slices on baking trays and return to the oven. Bake the slices until they have dried.
