This recipe is taken from the Australian Women's Weekly Home Library : THE BIG BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL BISCUITS.

note: I have replaced mine with just dried apricots but you can generally add whatever you want inside. but mixed fruits can be a bit tricky when redrying cause it tends to stick to the paper, so that means you have to be constantly beside your oven.







INGREDIENTS

3 egg whites
1/2 cup castor sugar
1 cup plain flour
125g -4oz) walnuts
60g (2oz) preserved ginger
60g (2oz) green glace cherries
60g (2oz) red glace cherries
60g (2oz) glace pineapples

Beat egg whites until soft peaks form, gradually beat in castor sugar, beating well after each addition until all sugar is dissolved.

Fold in sifted flour, whole walnuts and roughly chopped ginger and glace fruits.

Spread into greased 25cm X 8cm (10in X 3in) bar tin. Bake in moderate oven 30 to 35 minutes or until just firm. Cool out of tin.

When cold, wrap in aluminium foil, put aside for one or two days. Using a very sharp knife, cut bread into wafer-thin slices.

Put slices on to oven trays, bake in slow oven (150C)45 minutes or until dry and crips. I stand by near my oven and check very few minutes as my oven is very hot, and I flip to the other side once I see my biscuits slightly brown. It might brown very fast depending on your oven.

Helena,

Thanks for sharing Very Happy . I've been looking for a recipe for such cookies, but never found a good tried-and-tested one.

you r welcome angie, Very Happy it's my pleasure to share with those who are interested in them.

Alannia, biscotti uses the same method but its more like roll the pastry into a rectangle, add the fruits and then wrap and bake, slice rebake or redry them in the oven. u want the recipe? its from the same book as the walnut fruit bread slice but I havent yet tested it. but if you r interested, can post it for you.

Thanks, Helena, for the explanations.

It's alright. No need to post the recipes first. There are so much things to try at the moment. When I am ready to try it, I'll give you a holler.
