Eggless Pistachio And Tea Biscotti

I had been on a long break from blogging and hence could not participate in Magic Mingle. I have since come back and ready to delve into the magic, so to say! The magic ingredients for this edition of Magic mingle #15 are Tea and Pistachio. 

When I was thinking about this combo, my first thought was of a biscotti. I was wondering if tea and pistachio could work together in a biscotti when I saw some recipes online which used tea powder. I also had thoughts of using tea decoction in the batter. But I put those thoughts aside.

Eventually I used Mystic Vanilla Chai Powder which is sweetened. The result was very good. But I would suggest that the sugar be powdered and milk be reduced to make a stiff dough.

Ingredients - 

Wheat Flour 1 1/4 cups
Maida / All Purpose Flour 1 cup
Baking Powder 1 1/4 tsp
Vanilla Chai Powder 3 Tbsp
Sugar 3/4 cup (or more if preferred)
Pistachios, chopped 1/2 cup
Almonds and Cashews chopped 3 Tbsp
Flavorless Oil 1/4 cup (I used Canola Oil)
Milk a little less than 1 cup
Apple Cider Vinegar 1 tsp

Eggless Pistachio And Tea Biscotti

Method Of Preparation -

Mix the flours, baking powder, vanilla chai powder, sugar, pistachios, cashews and almonds.

Mix apple cider vinegar in milk and set aside for a minute. Blend in the oil as well.

Gradually pour in the milk-oil-Vinegar into the flour mixture and mix to form a stiff dough. (My dough turned a bit soft so I had to bake for a few extra minutes)

Preheat the oven to 350 F and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

Pat the dough on the parchment paper lined baking tray to form a 1/2 inch thick flat rectangular log.

Bake it for 40-45 min. Remove and let it cool for about 10 min.

Cut them into 1/2 inch slices and place them in the baking tray with the cut side up. Bake them again for 15-20 min until they turn golden brown.

Remove and let them cool on a cooling tray. They will get crispier as they cool. 

Serve them with milk or tea or gobble them as is :)
