Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cup (250g) plain flour ,plus extra for dusting
  • 2 free range eggs plus 1 yolk
  • 1 tbsp runny honey
  • 3/4 cup (150g) sugar
  • 1/3 cup (70g) candied fruit
  • 1/2 cup (100g) white chocolate
  • 1/8 cup (20g) pistachios ,crushed
  • 1 pinch salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Place the flour, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl and mix together. Whisk the eggs together with a fork and add the honey. Make a well in the centre of the flour mixture and add the eggs and honey. Using a fork whisk the eggs gradually incorporating the flour mixture until a dough forms.
  • Add the candied fruit and knead until they are evenly dispersed throughout the cookie dough (you may need a little extra flour if it's too sticky). Cut the dough in half and shape into two logs on two lined baking trays roughly 2cm thick and 4 cm wide. Bake in the oven for around 20 minutes until golden.
  • Turn the oven down to 130°C. Once the cookie logs are just cool enough to touch cut them diagonally into individual cookies. Place them flat on a baking tray and bake in the oven for around 10-20 minutes until nice and crisp but not coloured.
  • Once the cantucci are cooled melt the white chocolate in a heat proof bowl over a small pot of simmering water (making sure the water does not touch the bowl). Dip each biscuit in the white chocolate using a spoon or knife to remove the excess then sprinkle each biscuit with the crush pistachios. Leave the chocolate to to cool and set. Serve.
