How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Whisk the egg, sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl till thick and pale-ribbons of mixture should fail from the whisk as you lift it.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and cinnamon separately, and then sift into the egg mixture and fold in gently. Stir in coconut, cherries and pistachios.
  • Turn out on a lightly floured surface and shape into a flat log, 23cm/9 inches long and 1.5cm/3/4inch wide. Transfer to a large, greased baking sheet.Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and cool for 5 minutes or until firm.
  • Transfer the log to a cutting board. Using a serrated knife, cut the log on the diagonal into slices about 1 cm/1/2inch thick and arrange them on the baking sheet. Cook for 10-15minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time.
  • Cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet, and then transfer to a rack to cool completely.

    Yes, indeed all has been said above and I agree with all. I always seem to have questions though. How many biscotti can you make with this recipe. Is it what we see in the picture or are there more?

    Beautiful, I can't drink coffee ( at least I'm not suppose to :) ) but I love my biscotti with tea, have you heard of Rooibos Tea? it's a powerful tea from Africa.
