My dad's favorite snack with his tea is biscotti! So I thought to myself, why not make those? So I found this amazing recipe online, and added a LOT more orange. And yes, sadly no video today. 😭
If you don't want to chop your nuts with a knife: Blend with a food processor! Just give it a few pulses and it should be ready!!!
You can replace the almonds with walnuts or any other kind of nut. You may also choose to try it out with dried baking cranberries.
You can use the juice of your zested orange for this recipe. I use a cara cara orange for this bake.
Just pat your dough down until it's around 6 x 4-inch rectangle.
The reason you bake these biscotti so much is to make sure it's really crispy and crunchy.
Dip in your melted chocolate, and it's ready to be devoured.
Time: 1 hour
2 and 1/3 cups all purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
zest of an orange
1/4 cup unsalted butter (cubed)
3/4 cup chopped almonds
3 large eggs
3 1/2 Tablespoons fresh orange juice (from orange zest above)
1 Tablespoon canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi chocolate chips
Line a baking sheet and preheat an oven to 350 degrees F.
In a big bowl combine, flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, and zest of orange. Cut in the butter and add in the almonds. Meanwhile in a smaller bowl mix together eggs, orange juice, oil, and vanilla extract. Add the wet mixture into the dry and knead together. Cut the dough in half and place them in a baking sheet (pat down 6x4-inch). Bake for 25 minutes.
After 25 minutes are done, cut into strips (1/4" wide) and bake for another 8 minutes. Flip over and bake for a remaining 12 more minutes. Take out of the oven and cool.
Microwave chocolate chips for around 30 seconds. Dip your cooled biscotti and serve.
