I love the flavour of candied ginger and candied citrus peel

It is no secret that I love the flavour of candied ginger and candied citrus peel. And when this flavour is added to a cookie or biscotti it is always a winner. Last year too I made some candied peel and ginger and knew that I was going to use it up for biscotti.

A new recipe, a new twist

Every time I use biscotti recipe by Joy of Baking but this time I wanted some change and adapted the eggless version from here to suit my taste.

Adapt the recipe to suit your taste

I changed the recipe to suit ingredients available in my pantry. In place of sugar, I used jaggery powder, then replaced almonds and cranberries with candied peel and ginger, dried cherries and some tutti-fruiti.

They are perfect with your cuppa

I reduced the orange juice by ½ tablespoon as I felt that it may become too runny. After mixing all ingredients, if you feel that the dough is dry then you may add the remaining ½ tablespoon of juice. I didn’t need to.

The result was excellent, especially if you are sucker for bitter sweet taste. I am for sure. They were firm and crisp with just the right hint of flavour. A definite winner at our hands.
