I know, I know. “Beam me up Scotty” was never actually said in Star Trek. That’s because Captain Kirk was actually asking for his favourite biscuit - “beam me up (some) biscotti!”. In tribute to James Doohan, whose birthday was earlier this week, I present to you these pistachio and almond biscotti.
These biscotti use pistachios and almonds, but you could substitute any nuts you like as long as you keep the quantities the same. The key to making biscotti is to bake them twice - essentially once to cook them and a second time to dry them out. This twice-cooked process means that they’ll then keep for a couple of weeks at least. If you’re very lucky they’ll even beam into your kitchen.
