Spiced Fruit and Nut Biscotti


  • Prep Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 1 hour 40 minutes

30 servings


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup chopped almonds OR macadamia nuts,

1 cup chopped dried fruit (currants, apricots, cranberries, etc)

1 cup sugar

1/4 cup Spice Islands® Crystallized Ginger

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Anise Seed

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Fennel Seed

1/2 teaspoon Spice Islands® Ground Cardamom

1 teaspoon Argo® Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

1 teaspoon Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract

1 egg


Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Stir flour, nuts, fruit, sugar, crystallized ginger (finely chopped), anise, fennel, cardamom, baking powder and salt in a large mixing bowl. Whisk 3 eggs and vanilla together in a separate bowl until eggs are well beaten. Add eggs to flour mixture and stir with a spoon until stiff dough forms. (Hint: if dough is too dry, 1 to 2 teaspoons of milk may be added).

Divide dough into 2 equal portions and place on a lightly greased baking pan. Form into two 12 by 3-inch logs. Flatten logs to 1-inch in height. Beat remaining egg; brush on both logs of dough.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Slice logs 1-inch thick diagonally; place cut side down on baking sheet. Bake an additional 12 to 15 minutes, turning after 6 to 7 minutes.
