Some things taste as good as it looks…Biscotti is definitely among them. You can make it plain or with any additions of your choice.
These biscotti require just 2 tbsp oil…..they are quite addictive with a cup of tea!
Pistachio Cranberry Biscotti
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
¼ tsp nutmeg powder
2 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
6 tbsp sugar
3-4 tbsp dried cranberry
½ cup pistachio
In a bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg powder, cranberry and pistachio.
In a larger bowl, beat oil, vanilla, sugar and eggs till eggs are fluffy and sugar dissolves.
Fold in the flour mixture. Dough will be sticky.
Divide the dough into two and shape into flat logs approx. 3” width. Place on a parchment paper lined tray.
One was shaped without oiling my hands and one with oiled hands. You can see the difference.
Bake in a preheated oven at 150 degree Celsius for 20-25 minutes.
Take out and let it cool for a bit so it’s easy to handle.
Cut ½ “ slices at an angle with a serrated knife.
Return to the oven and bake each side 3-4 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack and store in an airtight container.
