Gaby's Bakery - Biscotti

Also known as cantucci, these famous Italian biscuits originated from the Tuscan city of Prato. The word biscotti is derived from the Latin biscoctus, meaning twice baked or cooked. The dough is formed into logs, baked, cooled and baked again. Whereas Italians use the word "biscotti" to refer to various cookies, we generally use the term for this singular long, crisp, twice-baked Italian cookie. If it’s wine o’ clock, pure a glass of vin santo for dipping them into.

Biscotti

Ingredients:
390g plain flour
200g caster sugar
120ml vegetable oil
30ml orange juice
3 eggs (lightly beaten)
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp almond extract
Pinch of salt

Optional extras:
65g chocolate chips / 65g pistachios / 65g almonds

Method:
Preheat oven to 170⁰C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

In a large bowl add the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, orange juice, eggs, oil and almond extract and beat until it forms a dough. I then split the mixture into 3 bowls and added chocolate chips to one, pistachios to another and almonds to the third. Mix each one until add-ins are evenly distributed.

On the prepared baking tray shape each batch into a log about 8 x 3 inches. Place the trays in the oven and bake for appx. 25-30 mins, or until golden brown on top.

Once ready slide the logs off the baking tray onto a chopping board and cut each loaf crosswise. Then place the sliced biscotti cut side down on the baking tray and bake for 6-8 mins, take out the oven, flip biscotti over and bake again for 6-8 mins.

Take out of the oven and allow to cool.
