Day 190: Tutti Frutti Biscotti
I have 10 days until I'll reach Day 200! How cool is that? I have a lot of options for what I'm going to bake, but I'm narrowing the list down. :)
I've been planning to make this tutti frutti biscotti for a while. A huge box has been lying around in the fridge for 2 months now. 🙄
Well, tutti frutti is basically candied fruits that are chopped into chunks. It can be in the form of bread, ice creams, and of course, biscotti.
If you don't have tutti frutti you can always make your own! You basically just make candied papaya which will be ready in 40 minutes and then just soak it for around 12 hours.
My parents grew up eating tutti frutti, so I thought I would incorporate it into my family's favorite cookie: biscotti!
This biscotti is just a plain vanilla one with no nuts. The tutti frutti is substituting the nut texture, in a way.
The tutti frutti in this biscotti is absolutely delicious and it makes your cookies look bright and colorful!
|Level: 👩🏽🍳👩🏽🍳|Time: 1 hour|Serves: 4-6|
6 tablespoon butter
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups tutti frutti
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat your butter, sugar, baking powder, and eggs together. Slowly add in in your flour and tutti frutti. Knead together until you have a smooth dough.
Divide your dough in half and pat each into 9x13" rectangles. Bake for 20 minutes. Take your biscotti out of the oven and cut 1- 1 1/2" strip across your rectangle. Bake them once more for 15-20 minutes. If you like darker biscotti go until 20 minutes.

Note: If you buy the tutti frutti that has candied cherries I recommend taking them out. They don't add a good texture. :)
