Orange Walnut Biscotti

August 6, 2009

Mama Kay and her dear friend, Polly Moore, perfected this recipe in the 1990s in Seguin.

Mix together dry ingredients:

3+ 2/3 c. flour

1 + 1/3 c. sugar

1 t. baking powder

¼ t. baking soda

1 c. chopped walnuts

Orange rind zest (avoid the white—it’s bitter)—Use two small or one

large orange

Zest of ½ lemon

Add wet ingredients previously mixed together:

2 eggs = 1 egg yolk  (Save the white for wash later)

3 t. orange extract

1 stick melted butter

Knead dough with hands. (If dough is too dry, add OJ or cream to moisten a bit.) Divide into two balls and shape into logs.  Place on parchment paper on cookie sheet.  Brush with egg white. Bake 350 degrees 30-35 minutes.  COOL.

Slice baked dough on diagonal. Place slices standing up on cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for additional 7 minutes.
