Dried fruit biscuits

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 10 minutes


  • 200 g of icing sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 150 g of raisins, soaked and squeezed
  • 150 g of almonds
  • 80 g of of pine nuts
  • 70 g of of hazelnuts
  • 125 g of candied citron
  • 125 g of candied orange peel
  • 200 g of flour


  • Preheat oven to 170°C.
  • Pour the icing sugar into a bowl and mix in an egg at a time, whisking with the electric whisk or with a wooden spoon until light and foamy, as suggested by Ada Boni.
  • Add the soaked and squeezed raisins, the chopped almonds, pine nuts, hazelnuts and the finely minced candied citron and orange peel.
  • At the end add the flour and mix gently.
  • Sprinkle some flour on the marble kitchen table and spoon the dough over the table. Shape the dough into a sausage with your floured hands.
  • Roll it gently and place it on a lightly buttered baking sheet. Brush the surface with a beaten egg and bake for about an hour.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool, then cut it into thin slices.
  • The biscuits are ready now, though I preferred to bake them again for 5 minutes in a preheated oven to 190°C, until golden and crisp.
