CANTUCCI DI PRATO

(0 votes)

This recipe comes from my mother-in-law's great-uncle, Zio Angiolino, who used to make lots of these traditional biscotti and gave them wrapped up as small Christmas gifts to family and friends. His friend Gigi, a baker, used to let him use his oven to cook the cookies, so they came out perfectly each and every time!

This recipe comes from my mother-in-law's great-uncle, Zio Angiolino, who used to make lots of these traditional biscotti and gave them wrapped up as small Christmas gifts to family and friends. His friend Gigi, a baker, used to let him use his oven to cook the cookies, so they came out perfectly each and every time!

Serves: 3 dozen (depends on how you thick or thin you cut them!)
INGREDIENTS

    500 g bread flour
    300 g sugar
    250 g almonds, unpeeled
    50 g pine nuts
    4 eggs
    1 tsp baking powder
    pinch of salt
    grated peel of one lemon
    a baking or cookie sheet, parchment paper

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F).
    Mix the flour and sugar in a bowl. Add eggs and the rest of the ingredients until the ingredients stay together in a ball of dough.
    On a clean surface, turn out the dough and shape it into a 3 cm wide roll as long as your baking sheet. Cover the baking sheet with a piece of parchment paper to help keep the cookies from sticking to the sheet (as no butter or oil is used). Place roll on the sheet, lightly flattening the top part of the roll.
    Place sheet in oven and bake for 30 minutes, then remove the roll from the oven. The roll should be warm and firm; place it on a cutting board and cut diagonally, making 1 cm wide slices.
    Place the slices back on the baking sheet on one of the cut sides, making sure to leave some space between each slice and place the sheet back into the oven, lowering the temperature a bit to 150°C (300°F). Bake for 15 minutes, then take the cookies out and turn them onto the other side and bake an additional 15 minutes. Remove and let cool. Store in an air-tight container to keep fresh.

These cookies are traditionally enjoyed together with a good glass of Vin Santo. Any other dessert wine will also go well. And although it is common Tuscan tradition to dip the cookie into the Vin Santo, the creaters of these two products have expressed a desire for this to not occur, saying each product has its own unique tastes which should be enjoyed.... together but not together.

Buon appetito!

    I not to mention my buddies have been studying the great pointers from your site and all of a sudden I had a horrible suspicion I never expressed respect to the website owner for those strategies. Most of the women are already as a result excited to read them and have pretty much been enjoying these things. Thanks for turning out to be quite considerate and then for going for this form of important topics millions of individuals are really eager to be informed on. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

    When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!

    I needed to send you a tiny observation to help say thanks again regarding the great information you have discussed above. It's quite surprisingly generous of you to offer openly what exactly a number of us could possibly have advertised for an e book to help make some dough for themselves, chiefly now that you could possibly have tried it in case you considered necessary. These guidelines in addition worked to be the easy way to be aware that some people have similar passion similar to my own to understand many more on the subject of this matter. I'm sure there are millions of more enjoyable opportunities in the future for individuals that look into your site.

    I needed to put you one little observation to thank you once again for your personal stunning thoughts you've shared in this case. It was quite seriously generous of people like you to allow without restraint exactly what most of us might have sold for an e-book to help make some cash for their own end, principally given that you could possibly have done it in case you considered necessary. Those strategies also served to become a fantastic way to understand that someone else have the same dreams much like my very own to know the truth somewhat more regarding this matter. I am sure there are several more fun instances ahead for people who read your website.

We hear all relating to the dynamic way you give practical ideas on this website and therefore attract contribution from other ones on that topic so our simple princess is really studying so much. Take pleasure in the rest of the new year. You're the one conducting a splendid job.

    I've been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
