Pistachio Cranberry Biscuits 开心果蔓越莓饼干 CNY 2016

 特别加入开心果蔓的越莓饼干,
希望大家吃了天天开开心心!嘻嘻!
Cranberries are good either in cookies, bread or cake. When I saw Ann posted her cranberry biscuits recently. I know this will definitely add to my cny list. I also added some chopped pistachios in the biscuits for extra crunchy texture and these are well received by my family members.
Pistachio Cranberry Biscuits 开心果蔓越莓饼干
  • 100g soft butter
  • 75g icing sugar, sifted
  • 1 small egg (about 30g), lightly beaten
  • 160g plain flour, sifted
  • 30g dried cranberries, cut into small pieces
  • 30g pistachios, roughly chopped
Method:

  • Beat butter and icing sugar till pale white. Slowly add beaten egg into it and mix well.
  • Add in plain flour in few batches into egg mixture at low speed, mix well.
  • Lastly add in the cranberry pieces and chopped pistachios, fold well with a rubber spatula.
  • Place the soft dough on a greased proof paper and shape to long length and roll it into a pole or square shape and roll it up. Then chill it for in the freezer for 45-60 minutes for the dough to harden for easier cutting. Cut dough into 0.5cm thick and place on baking tray (lined with parchment paper)
  • Bake at preheated oven 180C for about 20 minutes until slightly browned. (mine bake at 190c)
  • Leave biscuits to cool on baking pan and store in an airtight container.
