These cookies are way too cute. The chubby, rainbow-speckled cubes are loved by all and are the perfect size for stacking on the side of a coffee saucer, or piled up like little sugar cubes in a bowl. This biscotti dough isn’t rock-hard when baked so you won’t need to worry about any tooth-chipping mishaps. Lightly almond scented, these cookies are heavenly when enrobed in the white chocolate – perfect for a mid-morning snack with coffee.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
125g plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
65g granulated sugar
3 tablespoons multicoloured sprinkles
1 egg
1 egg white
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
100g white chocolate
1 tablespoon amaretto liqueur
or 1 tablespoon water

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and sprinkles. Add the whole egg and egg white, amaretto or water, almond extract and oil. Stir together into a sticky dough.
  2. Form the dough into a rectangle 10 x 12.5 cm on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Bake for 30 minutes until golden and firm.
  3. Remove from the oven and while still on the tray, use a sharp knife to slice into roughly 2.5 cm cubes. Spread the cubes out over the baking parchment and bake for a further 15 minutes. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes.
  4. Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a small heatproof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Make sure the bottom of the bowl isn’t actually touching the hot water. Use a wooden spoon to stir the chocolate until it is completely melted. It will take about 5 minutes. Dip a corner of each cube into the white chocolate then return it to the baking parchment and leave until the chocolate has set. Once set, transfer the biscotti to an airtight container (they will keep for up to a week).
