Ginger biscotti
with nuts and raisins
great and healthy snack

Cookies very fast and easy preparation.
hard and crispy I can not stop eating next to a hot drink, drink, cold and without drinking at all

These Hbiskoti story began when I joined the bloggers every month receives a copy of any subject and each makes up his blog entry. So this month the topic is ginger cookies.
gingerbread cookies, country are less familiar, very popular in different countries at this time of year, and are usually no fixed forms.
It was clear to me that these cookies do not want to make, and I have to find a slightly different direction.
And this direction came as a biscotti.
a long time since I made ​​cookies biscotti, cookies, and these actually I really love munchies (as if I do not like cookies?), like something hard and crispy, and do a lot of crumbs that eat them (Hhhh)

Okay, so I started looking for a recipe when I was also clear that I want it with butter.
Why? It's obvious - I'm quite fond of butter, and earlier this week when I bake, I usually bake dairy recipes.
So nice that I decided that rather recipes I saw were all with oil.
Never mind, I said to myself, I just replace the oil with the butter.
Well, I found a recipe that seemed to me and I decided to make.
But ....... Good grief! Selected recipe has only 2 tablespoons of oil.
No kidding, really disappointed. Replace 2 tablespoons of butter fat it does not matter
Aofffffffff cookies earlier this week and will be without butter.
I already try to find another recipe, but ...... Precisely the combination here with nuts and raisins really appealed to me.
Hopefully they'll be successful, I consoled myself, and I began to prepare.
Successful?? Are successful Madddddddddddddddd and I just can not stop munchies them
and when you look at the recipe turns out these Shbiskoti even contain healthy things, and it really was not intentional.
And one last thing - they are very easy and very fast to prepare .

Customer recipe source map , but still I did it some changes

100 g walnuts
50 g oats (not instant)
50 g bran - finely ground oat
flour 225 g
160 g dark brown sugar
½ teaspoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 / 4 teaspoon ground ginger
2 large eggs
60 ml (¼ cup) Sedan
2 tablespoons oil
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon nuts - see note
95 g dark or golden raisins

Coating - optional
60 g powdered sugar (½ cup)
¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract - can also be a lemon
2-3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Preheat oven to 175 degrees, and look forward to baking paper format
Mfzriim the walnuts / pecans and put in oven for 10 minutes. Remove, let cool and chop coarsely. Put in a small bowl, add the raisins. And set aside.

Mixer bowl mix the dry ingredients.
In a separate bowl mix the egg + oil + Sedan
While mixing the mixer on low speed slowly add the liquid mixture to dry mixture, until everyone is reunited, and if necessary to scrape the sides of the mixer so itchy. Add the nuts and raisins and blend the Union.

Remove the dough and divide in half.
on a floured surface shape each part of a long cylinder and transfer the pattern while maintaining a margin of about 7 -8 cm Between the rollers.

Bake about 30 minutes until golden bolts, and stable to the touch.
Remove and let cool on a grid for about 10 minutes.
lower the oven temperature to 150 degrees, cut the rolls into slices as thick diagonal2 cm, Put back in
Bake for 6-8 minutes on each side until the slices dry.
Remove and cool,

If you want biscotti really hard - let cool in the oven then blown out. I left the oven (turned off) for 20 minutes and then got out and cool J.

Preparation of coating - Mix For thick texture, and with a spoon drip lines on Hbiskoti. Completely dried at room temperature.

Store in a sealed container well. Can be kept so for a few weeks ..

Y source nuts are hazelnuts, peeled and roasted. Although I have in roasted hazelnuts and shelled decided I wanted to actually walnuts.
You can also pecans, and almonds also possible. Or any type of nuts who like, the point to be roasted
do not have to buy Bran - Oatmeal. You can take oats (not instant) have already played this recipe, and grind it in a food processor.
source sweetener is molasses. I changed Seelan.
coating is really not required. The original recipe has milk. I think actually more appropriate lemon. in the past I bought my shopping hazelnut extract so I decided to add it Lbiskoti. This essence is of course not mandatory, but I think definitely adds. and I'll tell you a secret - when I took the essence out I had too drawer walnut extract that I bought and I've completely forgotten I was just using it of course.

It's my first time on your site, so I have to say that the part I was most interested in was the mug. Love it!

(The biscotti looks good, too, of course, but that mug is amazing, hehe)

Winnie said...

Hehe I actually have a set of these mugs, each with a different color and different expression. I love it too :)
And I also have a similar set of soup-mugs
