Almond Apricot Biscotti

My sister was craving for biscotti the other day and I happened to received a recipe from my ex roommate so I thought I'll give it a try. Turned out great and this recipe doesn't require a single drop of oil if you are watching out for your calories.

250g Cake Flour
200g castor sugar(Originally was 250g)
1Tsp baking powder
3 medium eggs
100g almond niblets
50g of diced apricot or any dried fruits you like
1 Orange zest

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line baking tray with parchment paper. Mix the flour, sugar and baking powder in large bowl. Add in eggs and mix well. Add in fruits, nuts and lemon zest and mix till combined. Divide the dough into two and roll into sausage like shape at 3cm in diameter. Place on baking tray and bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oven and leave to cool for 10 minutes.
Using serrated knife cut the biscotti into slices. Lay the slices back on baking tray and bake for another 8 minutes. Cool completely before storing
