My introduction to these amazing Italian cookies was not long ago. So I remember buying a packet biscottis just to try the cranberries flavour. I absolutely loved them, so much that I finished it in a day, yes about 12 rectangularly shaped cookies in a day!!
And ofcourse i tried the cranberries one!!
So this recipe is a cranberries and pistachio one..
LETS GET STARTED!!
Start by combining wet and dry ingredients separately, As the recipe calls for some orange juice, you can add any citrus juice even mixed-fruit juice. Or even completely leave it out.
Mix this all well, and after this i realised i had to add more flour because otherwise this cant hold its shape, and once baked it would become flat.
But why did this happen?
Well the only reason i see is humidity, yes its about 85% here in kolkata. And since there is sugar which absorbs moisture. this became quite wet.
You can see the biscottis flat out a little bit, but don’t worry. Bake them at 180°c for 20-25 min.
Once done let it cool for 10-15 minutes, and then cut them vertically with each cut not being more than a inch apart.
Turn them, and bake them again at same temperature for 8-10 min, this part gives biscottis that amazing crunch texture from outside
Once baked, let them cool. dip them in some melted chocolate or enjoy them just like this or with a cup of coffee
