- 1 ½ cups of plain flour/ all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of cocoa powder
- 1 cup of caster sugar
- ½ cup dark chocolate
- 1 cup of shelled pistachios
- 1 cup of cranberries
- ½ tablespoon of baking powder
- Three eggs
- ½ tablespoon of vanilla extract
How to Cook
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, 180 degrees C. or Gas Mark 4 and line two baking trays with baking paper.
Take the chocolate and chop into little pieces. Do the same for the cranberries and the pistachios.
Take a mixing bowl and add the flour, the sugar, the baking powder, salt and half of the chocolate into a food processor. Process the mixture until it looks like breadcrumbs. Crack the eggs, add to the mixture along with the vanilla essence into the mixture. Hit the button again until it becomes dough-like.
Lightly dust the workspace with flour and put the dough onto it. Add the pistachios and the cranberries and knead them into the dough. Shape the dough into a ball. Separate the dough into two pieces and shape them into a long cylinder shape each.
Place the two dough logs onto the baking trays and place in the oven. Bake for about 25 minutes and then take them out. They will not be fully cooked at this point, slightly hard on the outside, but this gives you the chance to cut them into slices without the log breaking down. Allow them to cool.
Take a knife and cut them into 1.5 cm slices and then place on the baking trays again. Return them to the oven for another 15 to 20 minutes. Take them out. They might appear to be softer than what you may like but as they cool down they get harder.
After this, take a saucepan and fill with water and position over a medium heat. Place a heat resistant bowl over the top and add the last of the chocolate. Stir regularly as the chocolate melts. Once smooth, drizzle the chocolate over the biscotti and allow to cool.
