I love pistachios and I think they pair very well with oranges. I made these elegant biscotti as one of the four flavours for the birthday biscotti box for my partner’s father’s birthday. I hope he likes them. They’re very easy to make, so if this flavour tickles your fancy, I really would suggest you give them a go.
|1/2||teaspoon||vanilla bean paste|
|1||orange, zest of|
Preheat the oven to 180oC.
Thoroughly combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and pistachios. In a separate bowl, beat together the vanilla, Grand Marnier, orange zest, eggs and yolk till thoroughly combined. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry and combine to form a dough.
Roll into a log and lay on a lined baking tray. Bake for 30-40 minutes or till golden all over. Allow to cool.
Reduce the oven temperature to 150oC. Using a serrated knife, slice the log into pieces about 5 millimetres thick. Lay these slices flat on the baking tray. Return to the oven for about ten minutes to dry out.
Allow the biscuits to cool and store in an airtight container.
