‘Tis the season for some holiday baking… 🙂
Biscotti is a delicious breakfast and tea time treat, and it is often made with a combination of dried fruits and nuts. Macadamia nuts aren’t usually found in biscotti, but I tried it out in this recipe to see how it will turn out. And of course…it was delicious!
2 cups of all-purpose flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 tsp of salt
2 tsps of baking powder
1/4 cup of unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup of dried apricots, finely chopped
1 cup of macadamia nuts, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt using a stand mixer or a hand mixer.
Add the butter and mix until coarse crumbs form. Slowly add the eggs, one at a time, on a low speed until mixed. Add in the apricots and macadamia nuts and mix until a dough forms.
On a parchment-lined baking sheet, shape dough into two logs. Bake until dry and set, about 25 minutes. Let cool completely on sheet on a wire rack.
Transfer to a cutting board. With a serrated knife, cut logs on the diagonal into 1/4-inch slices. Bake on parchment-lined sheets until golden, 15 to 20 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Let cool completely on sheets on racks.
Enjoy with some coffee or tea!
