Apricot and almond biscotti with chocolate

Posted by

We have always loved biscotti. I have difficulty choosing my favorite kind of biscotti, but I often prepare this recipe. Almonds and dried apricots are pantry staples and taste delicious together. 

The recipe is simple and a little tricky. The dough is wet and difficult to workaround. The trick is not to over mix and gently place on the baking tray once mixed.

It looks like homemade bread. The apricots and almonds look beautiful. We enjoy them as such with a cup of hot coffee. Chocolate-coated ones taste fantastic. It is a healthy recipe with part jaggery and whole wheat flour. 

I hope you try this recipe and make your evening cuppa a little special.
