Indulge in these biscuits this Autumn: Pappasini Recipe15

Ingredients 

  • 500g chopped walnuts  
  • 600g sultanas 
  • 150g sugar 
  • 200g water 
  • a pinch each of ground fennel, cinnamon and cloves 
  • 2 oranges rind grated 
  • 1 lemon rind grated 
  • plain flour, as much as required to bind the nuts and sultanas
  • Optional – 1/3 of a cup of Vin Cotto (Wine Must) 

 

Method: 

Place the water with the sugar in a pot and bring to the boil, simmer for 5 mins. 

Mix the nuts, sultanas, spices, lemon and orange grind together with the sugar and water mixture. Add small amounts of flour until the ingredients bind together, shaping them like a Christmas Tree. 

If you like, add approximately a 1/3 of a cup of Vin Cotto (Wine Must) which makes the mixture darker, but will require additional flower to bind the mixture. 

Bake in a moderate oven, approximately 160c for 20-30 mins.  

Once cooled the biscuits can be decorated with icing sugar and a few drops of lemon juice, piped around the biscuits to resemble  Christmas Tree decorations.
