I take this opportunity to get more practice on piping and decorating, and most of all I really enjoy it..:)
Well, while baking for them, I do have some time to bake for myself too. Other than repeating the old recipes, I've done something new too....Biscotti! Yummy!!
I love biscotti especially when I'm taking my coffee. I usually bought them from "Coffee Bean" where I love their "Mama's Biscotti". Never thought of baking it and thought it is quite difficult but its not at all.
Got this recipe on the web but with some modification, here's my version..;)
240g Plain flour
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 tsp Baking soda
1 tsp Lemon zest
1tsp Lime zest
1 tsp Orange zest
A hand full of roasted almonds
~ Mix plain flour, baking powder and baking soda together.
~ Rub butter into flour mixture until resembles coarse crumbs.
~ Make a well in the center and add in eggs and other ingredients. Mix into a dough with hands and cut dough into half.
~ Flatten dough on a parchment paper and egg wash.
~ Bake at 200'C for 15 minutes until golden brown.
~ Remove from oven and cut into slices and place slices on the parchment paper (inside facing up)
~ Bake again at 180'C for another 20 minutes until dry.
