Ingredients

  • Whisk these together thoroughly:
  • 1.5 cups - whole-wheat pastry flour
  • 3 cups - all-purpose flour
  • 2.5 tsp - baking powder
  • 1/4 cup - Corn starch
  • 1/4 tsp - salt
  • In another bowl, beat together until well-combined:
  • 1/2 cup - canola or other flavourless vegetable oil
  • 1.25 cup - Orange juice
  • 1.25 cup - Sugar
  • Zest of one orange, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp - pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup - of finely chopped Walnuts

How to Make Orange-Walnut Biscotti

  • Add the flour mixture to the liquid mixture gradually, beating in until well combined. Add finely chopped walnuts.
  • Dump all the dough on a flat surface, and divide in half (If you find that the dough is still soft, just add some all-purpose flour until it's mouldable, but keep in mind you don't want a very stiff dough). Using well-oiled hands, roll each ball back and forth with your palms to form a log, about 11 inches long. Repeat for the remaining dough.
  • Place both logs as far apart as possible on an oiled baking sheet. Press down slightly on the logs to flatten them a little.
  • Bake in a preheated 375-degree oven until the logs are beginning to set, around 25 minutes.
  • Remove the baking sheet to a rack and when the logs are cool enough to handle, place one on a cutting board. Using a serrated knife and a sawing motion, cut into 1/2-inch slices.
  • Return the biscotti to a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Flip over and bake the other side for another 10 minutes.
  • Remove to a rack, cool.
