Fig and Walnut Biscotti

Fig and Walnut Biscotti
 
Recipe by Gina DePalma from The Babbo Cookbook by Mario Batali
Notes: This unusual cookie recipe included dried figs and walnuts that are pulverized into tiny bits and added to the batter. The logs were quite sticky and crumbly, even after baking. Slicing them proved to be troublesome, as the pieces tended to break apart. Due to time constraints, I let them sit in the turned off oven for almost two days, hoping they would dry out. Instead, they stayed quite moist. While I found them to be a mediocre biscuit, many tasters gave them much higher praise. As the headnote to the recipe describes, the texture of these biscotti are definitely unusual, but I don't think I'd make them again.
