Toasted Sesame and Fig Biscotti
Family Tested & Approved
non-stick olive oil spray
large grain, coarse sugar
red or purple crystal sugar
In a small pot, I prefer Corningware, place water, butter, and 3/4 cup of figs. Heat on medium with a lid until figs plump, but there is still liquid.
Place pot contents in blender, liquefy.
Place all ingredients, but sesame, coarse sugar, and red or purple sugar in a mixing bowl and pour in liquefied figs. Beat for 3 minutes.
Add dried figs and blend for an additional minute.
Take two cookie sheets, line with wax paper, and spray with non-stick spray.
Take half the batter and spoon onto cookie sheet into a 3in x 8in rectangle. Smooth to desired shape with spoon. Repeat on second cookie sheet with other half of batter.
Place in oven for 12 minutes.
Remove and allow to cool for 5.
Then cut into 1in strips or your desired size biscotti.
Change wax paper and respray.
Place on side and bake for 5 minutes. Flip biscotti and repeat.
It you prefer crunchier, leave in for 7 minutes.
Allow to cool and enjoy.
