Adventures in Food… Baking Biscotti

On Friday I came home and really fancied baking something. I don’t bake very often as I have the tendency to eat too much of what I bake. I took some time exploring the WeightWatchers website for recipe ideas. I came across a recipe for biscotti and decided to go with it as I quite like it and it had good portion sizes.

The recipe required:

  •  150 White Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 40g Margerine
  • 110g Caster Sugar
  • 50g Hazelnuts
  • 2 Teaspoons of Instant Coffee dissolved in 1 Tablespoon hot water
  • 1 Egg White

You start by combing the flour, baking powder and margarine to make breadcrumbs. Then add the hazelnuts and sugar.

Then spread the dough out on baking parchment in a square shape about an inch thick.20130614-200403.jpg

Bake for 35 minutes at 160 degrees Celsius (fan oven) and allow to cool for 15 minutes.20130614-200410.jpg

 

Once cooled cut into 12 pieces and put back in the oven for 10 minutes.20130614-200417.jpg

Allow to cool, or if you like it hot enjoy straight from the oven.
