Pistachio and Fig Sesame Biscotti
A modern spin on the classic Italian twice-baked cookie that's flavored with sesame paste, a hint of cardamon, crunchy pistachios, chewy dried figs, and coated in white chocolate.
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup Simply Sesame Pistachio Morsels with a Hint of Cardamon
- 1/2 cup dried organic figs, chopped
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup white chocolate, melted
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
In a medium bowl, sift together the flour and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the eggs, then mix in the Simply Sesame spread, dried figs, sugar, and vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and mix together well, until a dough is formed and is slightly stiff but still soft.
Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide into three equal pieces. Form each dough piece into a small rectangular loaf. Place loaves on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat and bake for 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool on sheet for 5 minutes.
Reduce oven to 300F degrees. Remove slightly cooled biscotti loaves from the pan and cut into ½-3/4" slices on the diagonal with a sharp knife. Place the slices back on the baking sheet and bake for additional 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven then transfer biscotti to a wire rack and let cool completely.
Coat half of each piece of cooled biscotti with the melted white chocolate and place back on the wire rack to dry. Store leftovers in a tightly covered container for 4-6 weeks.
