  • 2-1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon + 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs + 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 heaping tablespoon orange zest from 1 large orange
  • 1 tablespoon orange juice

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice

Instructions

Orange Poppy Seed Biscotti

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees with the oven rack in the middle. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a medium size mixing bowl, whisk to combine the flour, poppy seeds, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • In a separate medium size mixing bowl, whisk to combine the 2 eggs + 2 egg yolks, sugar, orange zest and orange juice until well combined, about 1 minute.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, fold until just combined. Will look dry.
  • On the parchment lined baking sheet, press the dough into a roughly 11" x 3" loaf. Pat down until they are about 3/4" thick.
  • Bake for 35 minutes, turning the cookie sheet half way thru baking. Remove and allow the loaf to cool for 10 minutes.
  • Lower the oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  • Once the loaves are cool enough to handle, use a serrated knife to cut ½" thick slices. Bake the slices another 15 minutes, turning each slice half way thru baking. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completely.

Orange Glaze

  • In a small mixing bowl, combine the powdered sugar and orange juice. Whisk to combine.
  • Stand the biscotti's upright about 1/8" apart from each other. Using the tines of a fork, drizzle the orange glaze over the top, and allow the excess to drip down.
  • Serving
  • Serve at room temperature. Best served with a hot cup of Bigelow Constant Comment Tea. Will keep in an airtight container for 2 weeks.
