Very Easy


Number of serving: 4
¾ cup caster sugar

1 1/3 cups plain flour

1/3 cup self-raising flour

¾  cup multi glace cherries

½ cup pecan pieces


  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease oven trays or line with baking paper.
  • Hand whisk sugar and eggs in medium bowl until combined; stir in sifted flour then cherries and nuts.
  • Knead dough on floured surface until smooth. Divide dough in half, roll each portion into a 30 cm log.
  • Place logs on tray and bake about 30 minutes. Cool the logs on tray for 10 minutes before cutting into slices of biscotti. Meanwhile, reduce oven temperature to 150 degrees Celsius.
  • Using serrated knife, cut logs diagonally into 5 mm slices. If you are to use some for Christmas tree decoration, create a hole near the end of the biscotti with a chopstick – this is where you’re going to thread a gold string through the hole and hang the biscotti.
  • Place slices, in single layer on baking paper lined trays and bake for about 30 minutes or until dry and crips, turning halfway through baking. Cool on wire racks.
  • Once cooled, start to thread the biscotti. If you’re having trouble threading use a toothpick / satay stick to “clear” the hole.
