Course Dessert


  • 250 g all-purpose flour
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 60 g soften butter
  • 35 ml warm milk
  • 100 g dry cherries
  • 50 g almonds
  • zest of one orange


  • In a mixing bowl combine the eggs and sugar. Using a hand mixer whisk them together for about 2 minutes. Add the milk, soften butter and whisk again.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine the flour, baking powder, salt and give it a quick whisk.
  • Add half of the dry ingredients to the eggs mixture and mix it with a spatula. Add the orange zest, dry cherries and almonds and mix again. Add the rest of the dry ingredients and keep mixing.
  • Transfer the dough onto the work surface dusted with flour and keep mixing with your hands. Divide the dough in half and form two loafs. Transfer them to a baking sheet and bake at 350 F degrees for 35-40 minutes or until slightly brown.
  • Let them cool for about a minute and cut the baked loafs into slices about 1/2 inch thick. Place the slices with the cut side up back onto the baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes on each side, until golden-brown.


Let the Biscotti cool completely and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
