Biscotti cont.

My sister came to visit this weekend for her birthday. She was very sad to have missed out on my biscotti earlier in the week SO we made more!  We decided to try some new flavours...  So! We made almond and dried cranberry AND dark chocolate, hazelnut and raisin and they were great! We used the same recipe as last time (blog post found here: ) We made two batches as my sister took some back to Oxford with her! Hope you enjoy! X Bo

Sultana, almond and white chocolate biscotti

My girls and I had a movie night. Our lovely host, Gail, planned a delicious Italian pasta dish for dinner so I made and took some biscotti for pudding! I've never made them before, so it was so much fun!  Ingredients 115g unsalted buter, soft 125g caster sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 large eggs 275g plain flour good pinch of salt 1/2 tsp baking powder 100g sultanas 100g almonds, roughly chopped 100g white chocolate, roughly chopped Method 1. Preheat the oven to 160. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.  2. Put the butter, sugar and vanilla in a bowl and cream with a wooden spoon. Gradually beat in the eggs. 3. Add the flour, salt and baking powder and mix to make a rough dough. Add the sultanas, almonds and chocolate and work in until even combined. 4. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into two equal pieces. Transfer the pieces to the baking trays. Shape into rectangles about 8x25cm. 5. Bake for 25 minutes until just firm to touch
