Ingredients

  • 2 medium eggs
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • Zest 1 orange
  • ¼ cup toasted hazelnuts roughly chopped
  • ⅔ cup chopped California Prunes

Directions

Heat the oven to 350°F and line a large non-stick baking tray.

Whisk together the eggs and sugar until light and fluffy.

Sift the flour and baking soda into a bowl, then add the orange zest, hazelnuts, and California Prunes. Fold into the egg mix to make a soft dough.

Tip onto a lightly floured surface and shape into a 10-inch sausage shape with lightly floured hands.

Transfer to a baking sheet and flatten to a 1-inch thickness, then bake for 30 mins until lightly browned on top.

Remove from the oven and slide the biscotti log onto a chopping board.

Reduce the oven to 325°F.

Cut the log into ½ inch thick slices and return to the baking sheet, cut sides up. Return to the oven and bake for a further 10-15 mins until crisp, then cool on a wire rack.

 

Serving Suggestion:

Serve with hot coffee or tea.
