Just before Christmas I wanted to stop by, add a recipe and share some thoughts with you.
Stopping by – a tick.
Adding a recipe – a tick (in a second)
Sharing – in progress :)
Christmas cakes are almost ready. One cheesecake is still in the oven… but almost done.
Not sure how it’s with you but I’m literally surrounded by sweets! How can I say no to them? Well, I can’t. And I don’t want to.
But coming back, I’m here to wish you beautiful Christmas. Full of peace.
I guess that’s what we all need the most nowadays. I’ve noticed so many people wishing peace to each other. We lack it, that’s for sure.
When I look at myself… last six months… I don’t know when it’s passed. I really don’t know. I’m trying not to waste time. To use every single hour, every single minute of the day… and still, something is slipping through my fingers. I can feel it.
Pay attention to little things. Keep your eyes open.
It’s good to see things. It’s better to notice them.
Good to listen. Better to hear.
Have a beautiful time.
Ingredients (gives about 40 biscotti):
- 2 eggs
- 150g baking sugar
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 4 Tbs maple syrup
- not full teaspoon of vanilla aroma
- 100-120g walnuts (a bit chopped)
Flour the form a bit.
Combine flour with baking sugar.
Using a fork whisk the eggs with sugar.
Add flour. Mix it for a moment.
Add syrup and aroma and mix again.
Add walnuts and mix again shortly.
You can put the mass in the fridge for a moment – it’ll be easier to form it later on :)
This moment has passed…
… form two rolls from the mass, each is about 30cm long.
If the mass is too sticky, water your hands a bit or use some flour :)
Place the rolls on the form and bake :)
Bake at 175°C for about 20-25 minutes.
They should get a bit goldish.
Once they’re baked, take them out and cool a bit.
Just do not wait till they are completely cold!
It’s easier to slice the cake when it’s still a bit warm.
So… cut the rolls into 1cm slices.
Place biscotti on a form again and dry them at 180°C for about 15 minutes – 7 or 8 minutes each side.
Take them out and… well, eat :)
