Pistachio Cardamom Biscotti - Eggless Biscotti

Biscotti is a great Italian accompaniment to Coffee.. Biscotti means double baked and as the name suggests, it is baked twice. it will be crispy and crunchy and at the same time will melt in your mouth.. I got this recipe from here and made some changes to suit our taste. My choice for P - Baked
Pistachio Cardamom Biscotti  - IMG_3250
Pistachio – ¾ cup
All Purpose Flour – 2 cups
Sugar – ¾ cup
Butter – 2 table spoons
Oil – 3 table spoons + 1 tea spoon
Flax Seeds / Chia Seeds – 2 table spoons
Water – 6 table spoons
Salt – ½ tea spoon
Baking Powder – 1 ½ tea spoons
Cardamom Powder – ½ tea spoon
Nutmeg Powder – ½ tea spoon

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
Mix flax seeds and water well for about 3 minutes until it forms a gooey liquid and set aside. This is the egg substitute.
Sieve together flour, salt and baking powder and mix well. Add cardamom powder, nutmeg powder and mix well
Beat butter, oil and sugar. It will not get creamy as the fat is less. It will be like wet sand. Now add the flax seed mixture and mix well.
Now add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and add also add the pistachios and mix well until no dry is seen. With the help of wet hands, make the dough into a log. Size is 9 inches length, 2 inches width and ¾ inch height. I used a kitchen ruler to get this right. You will get around 1 9 inch log and a 7 inch log.
Transfer the logs to the parchment paper lined baking sheet and cook in the preheat oven for 20 minutes until the edges start to get golden.
Remove from the oven and allow it to cool at least 15 minutes. Cut the biscotti diagonally 1 inch pieces and place them back on the parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake for around 10 minutes at 310 degrees F and reduce to 275 degrees F and cook for anther 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack. It will become even more hard after cooling. Serve as is or with coffee.. It has a long shelf life..
