Makes approximately 45 biscotti
250g plain flour, sifted
2 tablespoons cocoa
175g caster sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
3 eggs, lightly beaten
Grated rind of 1 orange
150g roasted, unsalted macadamia
nuts, roughly chopped
1 Preheat oven to 200º C.
2 Combine flour, cocoa, caster sugar and baking powder in a large bowl
and mix well. In a separate bowl combine eggs, orange rind and macadamias and mix well. Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients, pour in the egg mixture and stir to form a dough.
3 Turn dough onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Shape halves into logs, place onto a greased and floured baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes.
4 Remove from oven and when cool enough to handle cut logs into 0.5mm thick slices. Place slices on baking sheets and bake for a further 10 – 15 minutes.
5 Cool on a wire rack then store in an airtight container.
