Recipe

Pear Cardamom Biscotti

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter, softened

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

4 medium eggs, beaten

1 cup almond meal

3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting work surface

1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon salt

1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped toasted almonds

1-1/2 cups chopped dried Pears

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Combine sugar and butter in a large mixing bowl, and mix with an electric mixer on medium-high

speed until creamy and well combined. Add vanilla, eggs and almond meal, and beat on medium until

incorporated.

Combine flour baking powder, cardamom and salt in a medium mixing bowl, whisking to combine. Add

dry mixture to wet, and stir just until incorporated. Stir in chopped almonds and dried pears.

Divide dough into two equal chunks and form into logs on a well-floured work surface. Transfer logs

to prepared baking sheet, and bake 20 minutes, until firm and lightly browned. Cool on a cooling rack

for 10 minutes.

Cut on the diagonal into 3/4-inch-thick slices. Return slices to baking sheet, and continue baking 10

to 15 minutes longer, until biscotti reach desired crispness (keep in mind that they will crisp further

once fully cooled). Remove from oven, and allow to cool completely on a wire rack.
