Orange Cornmeal Biscotti with Dates and Almonds

When cookies just won’t do, try this fancy biscotti recipe made with our corn meal.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cups House-Autry Yellow Plain Corn Meal
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter - softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp orange extract
  • 2 medium oranges - zested and finely grated
  • 1 heaping tsp Chinese five-spice powder
  • 1 cup chopped dates
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • white chocolate - melted for drizzling

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking pan with parchment paper. Lightly spray with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the corn meal, flour, baking powder and salt. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Beat in eggs, one at a time until well combined. Add in the extracts, orange zest and five-spice powder. Add flour mixture, beating on low speed until just combined. Fold in dates and almonds.

Transfer mixture to the center of prepared pan. Form dough into a rectangle approximately 15-inches long, 4- inches wide and 1-inch thick. (The dough will be sticky, so flour your hands first). Bake in the center of oven for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and, using a serrated knife, cut crosswise into 3/4-inch thick pieces.

Lower the oven heat to 300°F. Place cookies back on wire rack that has been fitted onto a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes, rotating sheet halfway through cooking, until slices are just turning brown around the edges. Cool completely. Dip in melted white chocolate. Makes approximately 16 large cookies.
