  • Home made biscotti

    I made these Biscotti and they are really good, easy and healthy so I thought perhaps some of you guys might want to make them too

    You can replace the pumpkin seeds with any nuts/chocolate you want and you can remove the citrus if you want too (but it is good )

    Mandarin, Lemon and Pumpkin Seed Biscotti
    Remove rind (with no pith attached) and thinly slice from citrus to total aprox 1/4 cup (I used 3 small mandarins and 1 lemon)
    1/4 cup of juice
    1/4 cup of raw castor sugar
    2 eggs
    1/2 cup of raw castor sugar
    2 cups of plain flour
    1 1/2 cups of nuts ( I used pumpkin seed, although I would have used almonds and dark choclate chips if I had them)

    Put Rind, juice and sugar(small amount) in a saucepan, and simmer til the rind becomes transparent.

    Beat 2 eggs and sugar til thick, when the rind is finished, slowly beat the syrup and rind into the egg mixture.

    Add flour and nuts, stir til mixed. Knead a couple of times to ensure it is together. (the mixture is sticky)

    Shape two even sized logs on a baking tray. Clean you hands and with them just damp, smooth the surface of the logs. (I covered the top of mine in demerera sugar for a nice crunch)

    Bake in 170C oven for 25 mins til firm. Remove and allow to cool. Slice into 1 cm slices. Bake at 130C for 25 mins til golden on both sides.

    To Serve: A fresh coffee, 1 freshly peeled mandarin and a couple of biscotti. Yum!
