Dried Fruit Biscotti

Dried Fruit Biscotti

Recently I discovered biscotti and simply love them. Can be made in so many variations, simply with nuts or fruits or even chocolate. Homemade crunchy biscotti are absolutely wonderful for morning hot tea or coffee.

 

These dried fruit biscotti are made with dried cranberries, plums, apricots and raisins that bring an amazing taste. Can be also made for holiday tables or as homemade gifts. Kids love them too which makes another reason to keep making them.

  • Makes about 25 biscotti
  • 100 g butter
  • 7 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • Finely grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup mix of dried fruits (cranberries, plums, apricots and raisins)
  • 14 tbsp flour
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F).Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl beat butter and sugar until creamy, then add eggs, lemon zest and vanilla extract. Stir well.
  3. Add baking powder and flour and mix until well blended. Stir in dry fruits. 
  4. Pour the dough into one long loaf or 2 smaller loafs into the prepared baking tray. The dough is pretty sticky so you can wet your hands or use flour to be able to give the right shape.
  5. Bake for about 25 minutes, remove from the oven and let cool for about 30 minutes. Cut into 1/2 inch diagonal slices and place them on the baking tray. Bake for another 15-17 minutes until golden brown.

Those look beautiful; this post just reiednmd me that I have not made biscotti since I was a kid, I think I was twelve. It was Mother's Day and I wanted to make something really fancy for my mom, so I found a biscotti recipe and filled up a basket with them to surprise her with in the morning (breakfast in bed). Lord only knows if they were any good! How funny that I was not intimidated by such a thing at that age yet have not made biscotti since because I think it must be hard to make them come out well.
