Soft Apricot cookies – Biscotti morbidi con albicocche WHB #380

Soft Apricot cookies - biscotti morbidi alle albicocche
 
I love buying books. Once it was books about Plants & Gardening
 
botanica's roses2
 
then I started to “collect” Recipe & Cook Books
 
some cook book shelves
 
and now they are all about mountains & trekking and Garda Lake🙂
 
il Monte Baldo by E. Turri
 
But unfortunately not all recipe books are well made.
The recipe I have chosen from the book “the best cookies in the world – 1001 cookie recipes”
was very disappointing, I had to change the recipe to make it work out.

You need:
200gr dried soft apricots (soaked over the night)
2 tbsp of vegetal oil (I used sunflower)
100gr of raisins
180gr of oat flakes
20-30gr of buckwheat flour
zest from 1 lemon
1/2 tsp of cardamom (crushed)
Let the Apricots soak covered with water over the night.
The next day put all (water+ apricots)in a pot and cook for 5min or until they are soft and mashy.
Drain them of the water and the chop them in tiny pieces.
But them in a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients.
Mix with your hands and the spread out on a baking tray covered with baking paper. Spread and press with humid hands so the mixture will not stick to them.
When it is even and about 2cm high, cut with a knife in squares.
Bake in oven 200° for aprox 40-45min until solid.
Break in squares when cooled.
Will conserve for at least a week in a sealed tin box.

Soft Apricot cookies – Biscotti morbidi con albicocche
vi serve:
200gr di albicocche secche (lasciate in ammollo una notte)
2 cucchiai di olio vegetale (ho usato girasole)
100gr di uva passa
180gr di fiocchi di avena
20-30gr di farina di grano saraceno
zeste di un limone
1/2 cucchiaino di cardamon macinato
Lasciate le albicocche in ammollo coperte di acqua una notte.
Il giorno dopo mettere il tutto in una pentolina e cuocere per 5min o finché le albicocche non siano morbide.
Scolare e tritare finemente.
Trasferire in una bacinella ed aggiungere il resto degli ingredienti.
Mescolare con un cucchiaio di legno o con le mani per avere un’impasto
uniforme.
Stendere l’impasto con le mani bagnate su una placca da forno ricoperta di carta forno.
Compattare e poi tagliare con una spatola o coltello in quadrati.
Cuocere in forno a 200° per 40-45min finchè diventa consistente.
Si conservano anche una settimana in una scatola di latta chiusa.
