Festive Biscotti

1 egg
1 egg yolk
2/3 cup caster sugar
Ginger slices
Glazed Cherry slices
Walnuts chopped pieces
1 1/3 cups plain flour
½ teaspoon baking power


Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 large baking trays with baking paper. Beat egg, egg yolk, sugar and ginger, glazed cherries, and walnuts in large bowl until pale and thick. Sift over flour and baking powder. Stir to combine. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead lightly until smooth. Divide dough in half. Shape halves into 20 cm long longs. Place on prepared trays. Flatten slightly.

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden. Cool on trays for 15 minutes. Reduce oven to 140C/120C fan-forced. Using a serrated knife, slice logs diagonally into 5mm thick slices.
Place slices, in a single layer, on baking trays. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turning halfway through cooking, or until dry and crisp. Stand on trays for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Serve.

I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.


  1. That looks excellent - I am so giving this a shot.

    1. Pil,
      If you don't like walnuts you can change the nuts to suit your taste or leave the nuts out all together.

  2. That looks great, Shiralee. A pity I can't partake though :-( The rain was nice eh?

    1. Nanna Chel,
      I may have to start putting up an early warning for you to look away on recipe posts. And it was some storm that blew in. Nice though but isn't doing anything for the heat.
