Christmas Calendar 2016 - Christmas biscotti


It is time to be baking again in my little kitchen, this time it is Christmas version of biscotti. I have found this recipe in the weekly magazine "Feminda" (issue 46/2016), and I have made no modification to it.

Christmas biscotti: - approx 80 biscottis

  • 150 g marzipan - diced into small pieces
  • 300 g (cake) wheat flour
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cardamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cloves
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 g whole almonds
  1. Heat up the oven to 175'C.
  2. Add wheat flour, sugar, baking powder and spices into a mixing bowl. Stir everything together.
  3. Add eggs and marzipan, and knead everything together.
  4. Cover a baking tray with baking paper.
  5. Divide the dough into two pieces. Shape the roll into a roll of 35 cm and 5 cm wide.
  6. Bake the roll in the oven at 175'C for 20 minutes.
  7. Remove the rolls from the oven, and let them cool down slightly.
  8. Cut the roll into slices of 1 cm with a shape knife.
  9. Place the slices on the baking tray again.
  10. Bake the biscotti at 175'C for another 10-15 minutes.
  11. Cold down on a rack.
  12. Store the biscotti in airtight containers.
