Honey Orange Biscotti

I’ve recently started loving tea. I always liked tea before, but for some reason it was always second-best to coffee. No more! When Susie and I were in London last month, I picked up some tea from Fortnum & Mason (visit their website – their store is fantastic!). Anyways, this tea is amazing, so I decided to make something that could be eaten with the tea. Then, as luck would have it, I got a biscotti pan for my birthday! The pan looks like a longer, shallower bread pan, so I think I’ll be able to use it for many things. It’s also not necessary for this recipe, but useful if you have one.

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a biscotti pan or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a mixer, mix together butter, sugar, honey, salt, vanilla, almond, and baking powder. Beat until the mixture looks slightly fluffy. Add in the eggs and mix to combine.
  • Add in flour and orange zest and mix until well combined.
  • Place the dough in the biscotti pan, leaving about an inch on the sides of the pan without dough (the dough should be piled in the center). If not using a biscotti pan, place dough on prepared baking sheet in a rectangle (it should be 1-2 inches tall).
  • Bake for 30 minutes. Make sure dough is cooked through, checking with a cake tester (it should come out clean).
  • Remove from oven and let rest for 25-30 minutes. While biscotti is resting, turn oven temperature down to 325 degrees. Once the 25-30 minutes are up, cut into 1 inch slices.
  • Place cut biscotti on baking sheet, standing up. Bake for a further 25-30 minutes until the biscotti are nicely browned (but not burned!)
  • Remove from oven, and let rest. They should dry out a bit more as they cool, so don’t worry if they aren’t as crunchy as you’re expecting immediately.
  • Enjoy with tea or coffee!
