Apricot Almond Biscotti Recipe

    Ingredients:

    • 2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 cup dried apricots, chopped
    • 1 cup almonds, toasted and chopped

    For the glaze:

    • 1 cup powdered sugar
    • 2 tablespoons apricot preserves
    • 1-2 tablespoons milk

    Instructions:

    Preheat the oven:

    Preheat your oven to 350°F (180°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

    Mix dry ingredients:

    In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.

    Prepare wet ingredients:

    In a separate bowl, beat the eggs and vanilla extract until well combined.

    Combine wet and dry ingredients:

    Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until a soft dough forms.

    Add apricots and almonds:

    Fold in the chopped dried apricots and toasted almonds until evenly distributed in the dough.

    Shape the dough:

    Divide the dough in half. On the prepared baking sheet, shape each half into a log about 12 inches long and 2 inches wide, leaving space between them.

    Bake the logs:

    Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until the logs are lightly golden and firm to the touch.

    Cool:

    Allow the logs to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F (160°C).

    Slice the biscotti:

    Using a serrated knife, slice the logs diagonally into 1/2-inch slices. Place the slices back on the baking sheet, cut side down.

    Bake again:

    Bake the sliced biscotti for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden and crisp. Turn them over halfway through to ensure even baking.

    Prepare the glaze:

    In a small bowl, mix together powdered sugar, apricot preserves, and enough milk to achieve a drizzling consistency.

    Drizzle with glaze:

    Once the biscotti have cooled, drizzle them with the apricot glaze.

    Enjoy:

    Allow the glaze to set before serving. Enjoy your homemade Apricot Almond Biscotti with a cup of coffee or tea!
