Been trying different types of biscottis lately , all results were excellent by means of taste and texture.
not so sweet and not too hard, the right thing to have with your morning coffee.
Base of dough is almost the same but I used different flavors, anise seeds, coconut and blackberry jam and today’s amazing ones were chocolate with nuts.
Ingredients and method:
Coconut jam biscotti:
- 3 medium sized eggs or 2 large .
- 1 cup sugar.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil.
- 1 cup coconut
- 3 tablespoons blackberry jam
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp baking powder.
- 2 cups flour ( might need a bit more to make dough easy to handle)
Chocolate Nuts Biscotti:
- substitute coconut and jam with 3 tablespoons cocoa and half a cup of crushed nuts ( walnuts ,almonds and hazelnuts)
*Beat eggs, vanilla and sugar well till creamy.
*Add butter and oil.
*Add all other ingredients subsequently till you get a a dough , you can add extra flour to make it easy to form.
*Shape dough to a cylinder then cut with a sharp knife to slices.
*Bake in a medium heated oven for 10-15 minutes or till bottom is firm .
*Leave to cool then store in a cookie jar or tin.
Enjoy them with coffee or tea , taste is magical believe me.
