Pineapple-Walnut Biscotti


Swedish pearl sugar has large granules that don't lose their shape when baked.


  • 1 cup chopped dried pineapple
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons pearl or granulated sugar, optional


  1. Place the dried pineapple in a small bowl. Pour the hot water over the pineapple; set aside to soak 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  3. Beat the eggs and 3/4 cup granulated sugar with a mixer on medium speed in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add the oil, beating until smooth. Beat in the zest, vanilla and almond extract.
  4. Drain the pineapple; stir into the mixture. Stir in the walnuts and reserved dry ingredients. Cover bowl; chill 1 hour.
  5. Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Knead the chilled dough until smooth; shape into a 12 x 4-inch log on a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with the pearl sugar, if using; press down on log to lightly flatten.
  6. Bake until the edges of the dough begin to brown, about 25 minutes.
  7. Remove pan from oven; cool on a wire rack about 15 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, reduce the oven temperature to 300 degrees F.
  9. Transfer the log to a cutting board; cut diagonally into half-inch slices with a serrated knife.
  10. Place biscotti, cut side down, on the pan; bake until the cookies brown, about 20-25 minutes.
  11. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely, about 45 minutes.
  12. Store in an airtight container.
