These crunchy Italian biscotti are sweet and nutty but with a savoury edge from a touch of grated parmesan. Perfect for transitioning from savoury to sweet treats at afternoon tea.

Or, serve these apricot and pistachio cantuccini after dinner with coffee.

 

 

Ingredients

  • 100g plain flour
  • 75g golden caster sugar
  • ¼tsp baking powder
  • 1 medium egg, beaten
  • Few drops of vanilla extract

  2. Shape into a long oval and bake on a baking sheet for 20-25 minutes, until golden. Set aside to cool slightly.
