This spiced fig and nut biscotti makes a delicious homemade favour for your guests to take home. Or you could serve them up with coffee at the end of the night.

The biscotti will last up to 2 weeks in an airtight container stored somewhere cool.

Try dipping the biscuits in dark chocolate for some extra indulgence. I just wouldn’t recommend this for a hot summer wedding!

Chai-spiced fig and walnut biscotti ingredients

2 cups plain flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

3/4 cup light brown sugar

1 tablespoon ground ginger

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

3/4 cup roughly chopped walnuts

3/4 cup roughly chopped dried figs

3 extra large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Method

Preheat oven to 160°C (conventional). Line a large baking tray with baking paper.

Combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, walnuts and figs in a large bowl. Add the eggs and vanilla and mix well to form a dough.

Using damp hands, shape the dough into 2 x 18cm logs. Place on prepared tray. Bake for 35 minutes or until the biscotti is firm but gives slightly when pressed.

Set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Using a serrated knife, cut into 5mm slices. Place on two baking trays lined with baking paper. Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning halfway, until crisp. Cool on the trays.

Makes 30
