My sister and I can both cook, but her talent shines through in baking. This is her recipe for biscotti studded with jewel like turkish delight and pistachio. These crisp biscuits are totally addictive and mouth wateringly delicious. Try this combo first (because it’s amazing!), but on another day, substitute the turkish delight for chopped dates and the pistachios for walnuts for another delectable treat.
Turkish Delight & Pistachio Biscotti
2 cups plain flour, sifted
1½ tspn baking powder
¾ cup dark brown sugar
¾ cup pistachios
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tspn vanilla extract
1 cup chopped rose Turkish delight
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees. Place flour, baking powder, sugar, pistachios and turkish delight in a bowl and mix to combine. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well until a soft dough forms. This takes a while by hand so it is best to do it with the dough hook attachment on a KitchenAid. Knead dough til smooth and then divide into 2 logs and flatten slightly. Place logs on a lined baking tray and bake for 30 mins. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.
Slice the logs into 5mm slices and place on a lined baking tray. Bake for 10-15 mins or until biscotti are crisp. Store in an airtight container.
